Abstract:
Sugarcane is affected by several diseases in Assam. Although the cultivation area of sugarcane in Assam is less as a comparison to other sugarcane growing states of India, the prevalence of different diseases caused a reduction in yield potential of the crop. To obtain a clear picture of disease pressure in cane agriculture of Assam, the survey programme was carried out in definite intervals during 2016–2017, 2017–18 and 2018–19 in Assam. Red rot caused by Colletotrichum falcatum was found to occurs upto percent disease incidence of 10.53%. Wilt caused by Fusarium sachhari was found to occour upto percent disease incidence of 19.23%. Diseases like pokkah boeng, Yellow leaf disease (YLD) are becoming to be a major disease in Assam.
