Important findings

A herbal product ‘Seri-Mildewguard’ was developed after evaluating several plant extracts. ‘Seri-Mildewguard’ has to be administered at the rate of 11.25 kg/ha/crop in two split doses at an interval of 10 days. First spray with 5 kg extract in 250 litres of water has to be administered when the plants are in 5-6 leaf stage after pruning. The second spray with 6.25 kg extract in 313 litres of water has to be sprayed after 10 days of first spray. Spraying has to be done in the morning or evening hours during August to February months.
