Abstract:

Eggplant is one of the important economic vegetable crops which are attacked by several serious diseases such as wilt. Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. melongenae was isolated from a naturally occurring epidemic of wilt in eggplant plants grown in Maharashtra. Among six bioagents evaluated in vitro against F. oxysporum f.sp melangene, Trichoderma harzianum was found effective with maximum inhibition of mycelial growth of the pathogen (67.77 %),followed by Aspergillus nizer (65.92%). While, B.subtilis found to be most effective (45.55 %) among antagonistic bacteria under duel culture study. Similar efficacy observed during pot culture study. Trichoderma harzianum was found most effective with least pre-emergence seedling mortality (7.66 %) with 84.89 per cent reduction over control. The second and third best antagonists found were A. nizer and T. hamatum which recorded pre-emergence seedling mortality of 11.33 and 13.66 with 77.51 and 64.23 per cent reduction over control respectively.
