The experiment on integrated management of turcicum leaf blight of maize caused by Exserohilum turcicum (Pass.) Leonard and Suggs were conducted at Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Kashmir, Shalimar Campus Srinagar in a randomized block design with three replications. Excellent non-systemic and systemic fungicide, bioagent and Plant extract evaluated in vitro against Exserohilum turcicum, were integrated in field for two years during Kharif 2012 and 2013 and studies revealed that all the treatments were significantly superior over control in reducing disease intensity. Among the treatments, the disease intensity ranged from 3.57 to 17.00 per cent as against 20.45 per cent in control. Seed treatment with mancozeb 75 WP @ 0.25 per cent followed by two foliar sprays with propiconazole 25 EC @ 0.1 per cent at 40 and 50 days after sowing proved most effective treatment with minimum disease intensity of 3.57 per cent and maximum grain and stover yield of 56.95 q/ha and 15.57 t/ha, respectively.

Keywords: Bioagents, Exserohilum turcicum, Fungicides, Maize, Plant extracts.
