  • The disease starts as water soaked spot and later turns as a white spot surrounded by dark brown margins and yellow halo. The lesions enlarge and adjacent lesions coalesce to form necrotic areas.
  • The disease spreads through rain splashes during intermittent showers.
  • The incidence of the disease is severe in ginger grown under exposed conditions.
  • The disease can be controlled by spraying Copper oxychloride 0.25 % or Mancozeb 0.2%.
