Downy mildew (Sclerospora graminicola) was observed as most destructive biotic constraint in disease susceptible pearl millet cultivars. The pearl millet seed dressing with Apron @ 6 g/kg seed significantly reduced the incidence of downy mildew in moderately susceptible hybrids. It also increased the grain and fodder yield but this increase was not significant.
