About the Practice

Ergot disease causes heavy loss to the pearl millet (Pennisetum typhoides) crop. For the control of the disease, collect equal quantities of the leaves of wind killer (Clerodendrum phlomidis) and worm killer (Aristolochia bracteata) and extract the juices. Soak the seeds of pearl millet in this compound juice and dry them in the sunlight. Then sow these dried seeds. So treated ergot disease will not affect the crop which is a traditional method.
