Effect of vibrated water on management of pomegranate bacterial blight was studied. Vibrated water by itself did not show any inhibition zone. The treatments with chemicals with and without vibrated water formed almost similar zones (33.67 and 34.67mm), thus indicating vibrated water did not have any effect in controlling the blight pathogen Xanthomonas axonopodis pv punicae. Vibrated water was not found effective in inhibiting X. axonopodis in vitro nor reducing bacterial blight in pomegranate plants under challenge inoculation in plants. However, survival rate of cuttings in vibrated treatment showed an increase of 6.68 %. Results on growth studies are awaited.
Conclusion: There was no effect of vibration on the control of blight pathogen Xanthomonas axonopodis pv punicae. The survival rate of Pomegranate cuttings in vibrated treatment showed an increase of 6.68 % over non-vibrated ones. The results on the effect of vibration on the growth studies are awaited.
