Black Gram Rust

Black Gram Rust: Uromyces phaseoli

  • Spots produced are small, numerous in number with the pale brown centre and reddish brown margin. Similar spots also occur on branches and pods.
  • Under favourable environmental conditions, severe leaf spotting and defoliation occurs at the time of flowering and pod formation.
  • The fungus is seed-borne and also survives on plant debris in the soil.
  • High humidity favours disease development.
  • Spray Mancozeb 1000g or wettable sulphur 1500g /ha at initiation of the disease and 10 days later.
