Abstract

The effect of soil solarization and date of sowing were carried out against wilt disease in linseed (Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lini.). The average reduction in wilt incidence was 58.7% in 4 weeks soil solarization followed by three weeks (41.0%), two weeks (25.5%) and one week (18.5%). The incremental yield was 109.0, 66.9, 58.0 and 18.4%, respectively. The disease incidence was significantly influenced by planting dates. The maximum incidence of wilt was recorded in 20th October sowing (70.0%), which reduced in subsequent sowing dates with minimum (34.0%) in 10th December sowing. However, maximum yield (661.0 kg/ha) was recorded in 20th November, which was statistically on par with 10th Nov. and 30th November sown crop.
