The work focused on the monitoring of eight farmers' fields located in four villages (four each under zero and conventional tillage). Technical protocols developed by CABI Bioscience were followed. Results indicated that the average number of colony forming units on Rose Bengal (DRBC) medium was very similar in both tillage systems. Overall, there was no difference between the two tillage systems regarding the incidence and overall severity of rice or wheat diseases. Foliar blight severity, although slightly higher in zero tillage fields in 2000-2001 was not significantly influenced by the tillage practice used. In rice, sheath blight caused by Rhizoctonia solani was a major problem.Collection: CIMMYT Staff Publications Collection
