Pomegranate (Punica grantum L.) is a high value commercial horticultural crop grown extensively throughout Maharashtra. Among the different diseases on pomegranate Alternaria leaf and fruit spot caused by Alternaria alternata (Fr.) Keissler, is becoming a serious and emerging problem to growers in Maharashtra. Therefore, in present studies fungicides (six systemic, five non systemic and two combi fungicides) were tested in vitro against A. alternata. Among systemic fungicides, average cent per cent inhibition of mycelial growth was with Propiconazole (100%) followed by Hexaconazole (99.38%), Penconazole (90.74%) and Difenconazole (85.80%). Among non-systemic and combi- fungicides, significantly highest average mycelial growth inhibition was with Carbendazim 12 WP + Mancozeb 63 WP (81.39 %), followed by Mancozeb (78.05 %), Copper-oxychloride (70.13 %) and Copper-hydroxide (66.79 %).

Keywords: Pomegranate (Punica granatum L.), Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. punicae
