Black gram, (Vigna mungo L.) is an important short duration pulse crop grown throughout the year in India under different agro climatic conditions. In India the total production of black gram is 1.74 million tonnes from an area of 3.26 million ha with a productivity of 534 kg/ha (Anonymous, 2012). The diseases powdery mildew caused by Erysiphe polygoni is one of the economically important disease in black gram which occurs at later stages of crop growth causing an yield loss of 20 per cent (Singh, 1995). Environmental factors have major role in disease development so epidemiological study is necessary for management disease.
