A wide range of pathogens (fungi, bacteria, and viruses) affect the productivity of cucumber crop, which renders its production uneconomical. Therefore, an integrated approach was developed for the management of prevalent diseases of cucumber like damping-off and downy mildew using strategies such as growing border crop, use of reflective mulches, soil application and spray of fungicides and insecticides. The results of the experiments showed that treatment comprising raising of two rows of maize as border crop in the main field 15 days before cucumber seed sowing along with sliver agrimulch sheet, seed treatment with Carbendazim12% + Mancozeb 63% WP @3g/kg and drenching of Captan70% + Hexaconazole5% WP @ 0.1 % 15days after germination followed by sequential spraying of Tebuconazole 50% + Trifloxystrobin 25% WP @ 1g/L, Imidacloprid 17.8SL @ 7.5ml/15L + Neemoil 0.2 %, Fosetyl-Al @ 0.1 %, Tebuconazole 50% + Trifloxystrobin 25% @ 1g/L, Imidacloprid 17.8SL @ 7.5ml/15L + Neemoil0.2 % and Fosetyl-Al @ 0.1 % at 10 days interval till fruit formation was found significantly superior over all other treatment in terms of per cent incidence of damping-off (2.67%), downy mildew PDI (6.51) and fruit yield (126.80 q/ha) with better cost-benefit ratio (1:1.71). This integrated approach is safe and ecologically sound and seems to be a healthy tactic for disease management.

Keywords: Cucumber, Downy mildew, Damping-off, Fosetyl-Al, Trifloxystrobin, mancozeb, Mulch.
