Banana fruits are highly perishable in nature with estimated 25-30 per cent post-harvest losses and it is very difficult to store for longer period. Therefore, it needs immediate marketing and utilization. Different chemicals and bioagents were tested for management of post-harvest rot of banana. 100% growth inhibition was observed by Tebuconazole, Tebuconazole + Trifloxystrobin, Carbendazim, Thiophanate methyl, Propiconazole and Carbendazim + Mancozeb in in vitro condition. Among bioagents Trichoderma hamatum inhibited 61.4% radial growth of causal fungus followed by Trichoderma harzianum (54.37%). Pseudomonas fluorescens was found to be best inhibiting 100% mycelial growth.

Keywords: Bioagents, Trichoderma hamatum, Pseudomonas fluorescens
