Powdery mildew caused by Erysiphe polygoni DC is one of the major constraints in the production of cumin. Farmers have to spray fungicides regularly for disease management. In order to find out the effective fungicides against Erysiphe polygoni experiment was carried out under in vivo. The relative efficacies of six different fungicides were tested in different concentration. Among the different fungicides, propiconazole (0.025%) was the most effective fungicide with mean 4.43 per cent (pooled) disease intensity and maximum disease control of 79.28 per cent followed by wettable sulphur (0.2%). The highest yield of 798 kg/ha (two year pooled) was obtained in the treatment of propiconazole closely followed by wettable sulphur with 701 kg/ha.
