Important findings

Disease incidence (DI) and percent disease index (PDI) of tree was least and in bush was high with closer spacing (DI 12.2%, PDI 6.6%) and wider spacing (DI 7.4%, PDI 3.9%). In unpruned garden it was more (20.8%, PDI 13.8%) during autumn crop. During spring, with wider spacing and pruned garden, disease incidence was less compared to bush, closer spacing and unpruned garden.
