Title: Efficacy of Benomyl and Carbofuran in the Control of Wilt Disease Complex (Fusarium oxysporum) in Chickpea (Cicer arientinum L.)
Author: Atra Eltayeb Eltahir Ismail, Ismail
Abstract: An experiment was conducted in the glasshouse, Faculty of Agriculture (Shambat), University of Khartoum, during the winter season of 2008/2009. It was intended to evaluate the efficacy of one fungicide (Benomyl), and one nematicide, (Carbofuran) and thier combination in controlling wilt disease complex incited by Fusarium oxysporum in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.). The use of both pesticides solely or combined when mixed with wet seed resulted in an increase plant height of 32.8-35.93%, and in greater number of branches compared with other treatments. The use of Carbofuran alone or combined with Benomyl resulted in significant (P < 0.05) increase in number of branches. The use of Benomyl mixed with wet seeds and dry seeds significantly (P< 0.05) increased the number of leaves. The use of Benomyl alone and mixed with Carbofuran delayed plants mortality for 6-10 weeks. In the treatments whereby plants were raised from dry seeds, the mortality percentage was 61.10%-100%. Less mortality percentage of 61.08% - 94.43% was recorded for plants raised from wet seeds
