Tanjore wilt

Coconut    Tirunelveli

The symptoms look similar to that of TANJORE WILT. There is sudden attack found in many trees. Which is the best method to control the spread of the disease? What are all the management measures?

Tanjore Wilt is also called basal stem rot disease. Fungicides do not offer a permanent solution to the affected tree. Some effective treatments include biofertilizers (phosphobacteria 200 g in 10 kg farmyard manure). Trichoderma harzianum (T. harzianum) applied with green leaves, neem cake, r farmyard manure is also an effective management treatment.
