Abstract

A survey was conducted in major cluster bean growing districts of Rajasthan during Kharif season 2022 and 2023 which showed the stem rot disease caused by Sclerotium rolfsii Sacc. is an imperative pathological problem, mostly in Bikaner, Shri Ganganagar and Hanumangarh districts. Average disease incidence was 22.33 per cent recorded in surveyed districts of Rajasthan. Highest average disease incidence (27.67%) was reported in Shri Ganganagar followed by Hanumangarh (22.50%) while lowest in Bikaner (16.83%) district.

Keywords: Survey, stem rot, Bikaner, clusterbean, village
