Abstract:

To manage the disease an investigation at the Department of Plant Pathology, SHIATS-DU, Allahabad was carried out to evaluate the effect of bio-agents viz. Trichoderma viride @ 2%, Pseudomonas fluorescens @ 2%, T. harzianum @ 2%, botanical viz. neem leaf extract @ 5%, neem oil @ 5% and fungicide viz. carbendazim @ 0.2% against R. solani under in-vitro condition by dual culture and poisoned food technique. All the bio-agents and botanical were evaluated singly. All the treatments significantly inhibited the mycelial growth of R. solani as compared to untreated check. Maximum inhibition per cent of mycelia growth of Rhizoctonia solani was recorded in Trichoderma viride (82.82%) followed by neem oil (82.69%), P. fluorescens (79.26%), T. harzianum (77.98%) and neem leaf extract (73.79%) as compared to treated check (Carbendazim) (87.78%) and untreated check (0%).


Keywords: Capsicum annuum, Rhizoctonia solani, Trichoderma viride, Pseudomonas fluorescens, Trichoderma harzianum, Neem leaf extract, Neem oil, Carbendazim, Root rot.
