Common bean anthracnose is a major production constraint in bean growing regions of Ethiopia. This study aimed to determine whether foliar sprays of mancozeb, folpan and mancolaxyl or antagonistic bioagents; Trichoderma harzianum, Trichoderma viride and Pseudomonas fluorescens could reduce anthracnose symptoms and consequently, increase yield and yield components. A total of seven treatments were arranged in a randomized complete block design with three replications. Statistical analysis showed significant differences among treatments. Anthracnose incidence, severity, infected pods per plant and the area under disease progress curve were highest in the control plots compared to the fungicide sprayed and bioagent treated seed plots. The highest percentage of infected pods per plant of 78.9 and 55.0 recorded on the control and mancozeb sprayed plots, respectively.
Online Journals are scholarly and peer reviewed journals. The journals provide forum and motivates scientists, researchers, academics, engineers, and practitioners in all aspects to share their professional and academic knowledge in the fields computing, engineering, humanities, economics, social sciences, management, medical science, and related disciplines. Online Journals also aims to reach a large number of readers worldwide with original and current research work completed on the vital issues of the above important disciplines. The journals permit all readers to read, view, download and print the full-text of all published articles without any subscription or restrictions.
Journal of Horticulture is one of the top Online Publisher Journals. OMICS Group being a scientific organization that drives the progress of research through open access journals and international conferences. OMICS Group consists of more than 700+ peer-reviewed journals which increases the research globally and widely available. OMICS Group top online publishing journals contain academic scientific journals which covers areas of Science, technology and medicine. The major goal of OMICS Group journals is to provide peer reviewed unbiased scientific data to students, researchers, healthcare providers, and the decision makers. OA publications are not free to produce, even if it is less costly to make than conventionally published literature.
