Correct Answer - Option 3 : Tikka

The correct answer is Tikka.

  • Tikka
    • It is major disease-affecting groundnut (and all its varieties) in India.
    • The infection initially originates with the fungus getting carried on plant debris or through the seed.
    • All parts of the host plant above soil level are attacked.
    • The first visible symptoms appear on the leaflets of lower leaves as dark spots which at a later stage, are surrounded by yellow rings.

  • Powdery mildew
    • It is a fungal disease.
    • It affects a wide variety of plants.
    • It appears as light grey or white powdery spots usually found on infected leaves, but can also be found underneath, or on stems, flowers, fruit or vegetables.
    • It thrives in warm, dry climates.
  • Damping-off
    • It is a soil-borne fungal disease that affects seeds and new seedlings.
    • It refers to the rotting of stem and root tissues at and below the soil surface.
    • It can be reduced by planting fungicide-treated seed directly into the garden.
