Chili (Capsicum annuum L.) is an economically important and widely cultivated crop of India. Chilli leaf curl virus is one of the major
limiting factors in chili production, which decreases yield significantly. The experiment was carried out in one hundred fifty villages randomly
selected in eastern Uttar Pradesh viz, Sultanpur and Faizabad districts during 2014 and 2015 from March to May each year. The highest leaf
curl incidence was noticed in Sewra (67.39 %) followed by Hasuimukundpur (65.22%) and Etwara (64.07%) in 2014, whereas in 2015, it was
found maximum in Sewra (61.44%), Hasuimukundpur (59.79%) and Isawli (57.07%). In case of block wise, the maximum incidence was found
Amaniganj (59.53, 50.79%) and Kurwar (54.70, 52.91%) in 2014 and 2015 respectively. While the lowest incidence was observed at Milkipur
47.46 % in 2014 and 41.48% in 2015 the average leaf curl disease incidence was recorded highest in 2014 at both districts.
