Foot rot of tomato is an important disease which causes severe loss in tomato production. The present study was carried out to evaluate five bioagents and six fungicides against Sclerotium rolfsii. Among the five antagonists tested the maximum inhibition was observed in Trichoderma virens (67%) and contrarily, no inhibition was observed in Bacillus subtilis. Six fungicides viz., carbendazim, captan, tebuconozole, copper oxychloride, hexaconozole and Tebuconazole +Trifloxytrobin at different concentrations (50, 100, 150, 200, 250 and 500 ppm), were tested. Among the tested fungicides, systemic fungicides like hexaconazole, tebuconozole and combi product, Nativo (tebuconazole 50% + trifloxystrobin 25%) showed complete inhibition of S. rolfsii at all the concentration tested.
