Abstract. In this study all the samples like soils, sugarcanes and red rot causing fungi (C. falcatum went) collected from red rot prone and resistant areas sugarcane fields are analyzed in order to estimate the presence of some important macro and micro elements. This analysis reveals the presence of trace elements like Ca, Na, K, Fe, Mg, Zn, Cu, Mn, Cr, B and Co, in varying quantities. A correlation study has been attempted between the elemental status and the disease prone and resistant samples.
Key words: Red rot, sugarcane soil, ICP-AES.
