Chocolate spot causes substantial yield losses in various cropping seasons in Ethiopia and in many parts of the world wherever faba bean grows. Thus, integrated management of faba bean chocolate spot (Botrytis fabae Sard.) was studied using the moderately tolerant variety, ‘Degaga’ (R-878-3) and local cultivar during the 2012/13 main cropping season at Bekoji and Kulumsa Agricultural Research Centers in Arsi, Ethiopia. The experiment was laid out in a randomized complete block design in a factorial combination of two faba bean cultivars, two cropping systems (Degaga- and Local-barley intercropping in 1:1 ratio) and four spray intervals of fungicide (Chlorothalonil) applied at 7, 14 and 21 days after the onset of disease at a rate of 2.5kg a.i ha-1 and unsprayed control with three replications. Chocolate spot infection was more prevalent at Kulumsa with a significant (P<0.001) amount of disease observed as compared with Bekoji (P < 0.05).
