Data on feasible cropping systcms to be used in semi-arid Vcrtisols to rcducc the soil borne disease of fusarium wilts of samowcr is prcsentcd. Influence of crop succcssions and fertilirers on discasc incidcncc and on the progression of wilt during the crop season are discusscd. It is suggcstcd that a break in continuous crop succcssions of samowcr in thc post rainy scason with a legume like chickpea or cowpea intcrcroppcd with pigconpca will reduce thc dixasc incidence of wilt in samowcr. This can be used as an cffectivc rnanagcrncnt practicc in hcavily infected soils where chemical treatment is impractical and a suitablc resistant variety is not available.
