Aim: The study was conducted to demonstrate effective fungicides to manage faba bean gall under natural infection.
Materials and Methods: Two fungicides viz; Noble 25 WP and Ridomil 80 WP were demonstrated alongside control plots.
Results: The results revealed that use of Noble 25 WP and Ridomil 80 WP reducesfaba bean gall explained by reducing AUDPC and percentage severity index (PSI) as well as higher yield. Noble 25 WP recorded the lowest faba bean gall PSI (15%) and AUDPC (855%/days). The yield advantage of the Noble 25 WP and Ridomil 80 WP compared to control was 58.04% and 18.43% respectively. A marginal rate of return of 681.90% and 678.16% were obtained from plots sprayed with Nobble 25WP and Ridomil 80 WP fungicides.
Conclusion: It was concluded that spraying of Noble 25 WP and Ridomil 80 WP reduced “faba bean gall” disease severity and AUDPC. Application of these fungicides gave high yield and net profit than control plots.
