In the present study nine fungicides were evaluated against the false smut disease of rice during kharif-2016. Among the different fungicides tested azoxystrobin (18.2 %) SC + difenconozole (11.4 %) SC and metiram (55 %) WG + pyraclostrobin (5 %) WG @ 0.1 per cent recorded the least disease severity of 1.85 and 2.52 per cent respectively, followed by propiconazole 25 EC, Azoxystrobin 25 % SC, Difenconazole 25 % EC, tebuconozole 250 EC and flusilazole (25 %) SE + carbendazim (12.5 %) SE showed better efficacy at 0.1 per cent and enhanced the paddy yield under field condition.

Keywords: False Smut, Fungicides, Rice, Ustilaginoidea virens.
