PLANT PATHOLOGY

 

Tripura is endowed with a humid and sub tropical climate which harbours huge bio diversity. The agro climatic condition and availability of a wide range of plant genetic resources cause survivality of several pest and diseases. The division is engaged to combat the attack of pest and diseases of different crops. Varieties have been identified to combat the attack of different pest and disease like CRM-13-3241, Gaduma and Heera to prevent blast disease in cereals crops. To combat leaf spot disease in groundnut some tolerance varieties are ICGS- 10936, 10964 and 10943. In mustard two varieties Rohini and M-27 show resistant to leaf spot. In vegetables root knot nematodes and bacterial wilt are important disease in tomato and brinjal, variety like BT-10 and 12, Arka Abha, Arka Alok of tomato and Bholanath, Singnath, PPC, BSI-2 and 3 of brinjal can tolerate this disease.
