The field trial conducted during October 2011 to January 2012 at TNAU indicated that SAAF @ 562.5 g a.i./ha (or 750 g/ha) dose can effectively control Leaf spot, powdery mildew and  anthracnose or fruit rots diseases of chillies. This dose was at par with higher dose and resulted better yield than other treatments. No phytotoxicity was observed up to the dosage of SAAF @ 1125 g a.i./ha (1500 g/ha) i.e. double of the effective dose.
