An invitro compatibility studies were conducted with Trichoderma harzianum and some commonly used chemical pesticides. The experiment was laid out in Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with four replications and seven treatments of fungicides, seven treatments of herbicides and seven treatments of insecticides on biocontrol agents T.harzianum. The fungicide ametoctradin + diamethomorph was found moderately toxic, while carbendazim + mancozeb, copper oxychloride, azoxystrobin + tebuconazole, captan and thiophenate methyl, proved toxic. Among the herbicides, carfentrazone ethyl was found compatible and glyphosate was proved slightly toxic. oxyflourofen and metribuzin are moderately toxic. The herbicides, sulfentrazone + clomazone and fomesafen + flauzifop-p-butyl, were incompatible. Insecticides, imidachloprid, acetamiprid, spinosad, imamectin benzoate and chlorantraniliprole, were found compatible whereas thimethoxam + lambda cyhalothrin was found slightly toxic.Some chemical pesticides did not affected the growth and development of T harzianum. Hence combination of such chemical pesticides with biocontrol agents can provide an additive or synergistic effect in the control of diseases and pests. These chemical pesticides and biocontrol agents can be used in an integrated pest management programme.
