Results of On Farm Trial
A. Technology assessment and refinement in details of pest and disease management
Problem definition: Heavy infestation of white grub in groundnut affecting yield loss up to 12 to 20 percent according to area specific.
Technology assessed or refined (as the case may be):  Management of white grub in groundnut crop.
     Very low white grub infestation in groundnut was observed during kharif-2020 and 2.9% plant infested in farmer practice without seed treatment of chlorphyriphos where as 1.5% and 1.38% plant infestation observed in seed treatment with chlorphyriphos and soil application of metarhizium respectively. 5.3% yield loss was recovered due to white drub infestation in the treatments T1 , T2 & T3.

B. Technology assessment and refinement in details of pest and disease management
Problem definition: Heavy incidence of wilt disease in cumin effecting yield loss up to 5 to 25% and monetary loss of  Rs.15000/- to 20000/- per ha.
Technology assessed or refined (as the case may be):  Use of Trichoderma for wilt disease management in cumin
     Cumin is an important commercial spice crop of Northern Saurashtra. There is high incidence of wilt disease resulting in yield loss. KVKs Morbi conducted on farm trial to assessed technology of application of Trichoderma as per treatment, Disease intensity at 75 DAS reduced from 8.6%, 2.79% and 2.05% in treatment T1, T2 and T3 respectively. Yield increased 11.3% and 14.4% in T2 and T3 than T1 respectively.

     The OFT trail was conducted for three years on cumin for management of wilt. The pooled results of three years revealed that, treatment T3 recovered 1172 kg/ha which was 16.5 and 4.1% higher seed yield than the treatments T1 and T2, respectively. The highest wilt disease infestation of 11.36% was observed in treatment T1 as compared to 4.53 and 3.05% in T2 and T3 respectively.

Results:

1) T1 & T2 – No damage in pulses during entire test period of 60, 90 and 180 days.

2) T3 – Approx 5 % of damage in pulses at 180 days. The result causes by frequent opening of air tight plastic bag.

3) T4 – Approx 10% of damage in selected pulses at 90 days. However, approx 20% of damage at 180 days.
