Most pods are lost in the mid-year period when crop production is highest and when the months are cooler and more humid. Season variation in the disease was not affected by a seasonal pod production although it was modified by planting density and susceptibility of planting material. Control measures are discussed in terms of spray application, selection for resistance, and the possible modification of crop distribution by controlling time of flowering
