Cultural control of rust disease in groundnut

Cultural Control of rust in groundnut

Groundnut Rust  

  • Crop rotation and field sanitation. Adopt cereal-cereal-groundnut crop rotation.
  • Strict plant quarantine regulations should be enforced to avoid the spread of rust on pods or seeds to disease free areas.
  • Early sowing in the first fortnight of June to avoid disease incidence.
  • Intercropping pearl millet or sorghum with groundnut (1 :3) is useful in reducing the intensity of rust.
  • Use resistant/tolerant varieties like ICGV 89104, ICGV 91114, ICGV 86699, ICGV 92020, and ICGV 92093..
