Abstract:

Sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) is aprimitive oilseed crops cultivated in semi-arid Tropics and sub tropics regions in India. Macrophomina phaseolina a soil borne fungus cause root and stem rot in sesame crop and pathogen attacks plant at all growth stages. Due to soil borne nature practically no effective field control and no source of resistant is available. A field experiment was conducted with twenty cultivars of sesame during kharif sesame 2017. Trichoderma viride and Pseudomonas fluorescens was evaluated in vivo and in vitro, to assess their antagonistic potential against M. phaseolina causing root and stem rot of sesame. Treatment (T5-Seed treatment T. viride + P. fluorescens @ 10 g /kg + Soil application of P. fluorescens @ 2.5 kg/ha + T. viride @ 2.5 kg/ha enriched in 100 kg of FYM + Oil cake) @ 250 kg/ha at sowing ) and Treatment (T3-Seed treatment T. viride @ 10g/kg + soil application of T. viride @2.5 kg/ha enriched in 100 kg of FYM + Oil cake) @ 250 kg/ha at sowing) were found highly effective reducing the disease intensity (12.3%,14.0%) as compared to control (37.5%). The sesame cultivars TKG-306 (9.23%), TKG-21(10.0%) were found resistant to root and stem rot disease.
