Shipra Tyagi | Dr. Anjali Dutt

Abstract: Fungal diseases cause heavy economic losses in the agricultural field. Fungal pathogens survive in the soil for years leading to the economically important crops. Capsicum annum (chilli) is an important vegetable crop and is affected by a variety of fungal diseases. Anthracnose and Powdery mildew are common. The present study investigates the fungal pathogens on chilli with special reference to certain homeopathic drugs as controlling agents. Chemical based techniques are usually used to control the fungal pathogens which results in harmful residues. The present investigation aimed to evaluate in vivo antifungal effects of homeopathic drugs on chilli crop. Four homeopathic drugs Aconite, Arnica montana, Belladonna and Thuja occidentalis in 200CH dynamizations were tested. We assessed planta incidence and disease severity. The results showed that all homeopathic drugs tested at 200CH dynamization positively reduced the intensity of the fungal diseases compared to control treatment. Among all four homeopathic drugs Aconite at 200CH showed positive effect in reducing both disease incidence and disease severity.
