A field experiment was conducted during Kharif 2017-2018 to study the effect of tropical red seaweed (Kappaphycus alvarezii) bioformulations (LBS 6 and LBD 1 in relieving the fungicidal stress and imparting the resistance to blast disease) in rice. Foliar application of LBS6 @ 1 ml/l was found to be statistically superior in improving yield parameters viz., straw (6.94 kg/plot) and grain weight (5.59 kg/plot). There was 41.90 and 27.04 per cent increase over control with respect to straw and grain yield in T3 (LBS6 @ 1.0 ml/l). Lower disease severity of 11.52 per cent was recorded in T1 (tricyclazole 75 %WP). The bioformulation LBD1 (T4) treated plots recorded 12.11 per cent disease severity. However there was no significant difference between T1 and T4. It was observed that LBD1 was on par with the fungicide in controlling the disease.
