In vitro screening of different contact, systemic and combi-products against Alternaria tenuissima the fungus causing leaf blight of kodo millet was done employing poison food technique. The results revealed that, among the four contact fungicides, mancozeb at 0.15 and 0.20 per cent concentration gave the maximum inhibition (69.33 and 66.67%) of mycelial growth. Among the five different combi-products studied, maximum inhibition of mycelial growth of 87.03, 86.66 and 85.18 per cent was noticed in hexaconazole + zineb at0.10, 0.15 and 0.20 per cent concentrations, but among the five different systemic fungicides azoxystrobin recorded the maximum inhibition of 100, 98.88, 98.88 per cent at the three concentrations of 0.05, 0.075, 0.10 per cent respectively.

Keywords: Alternaria tenuissima, Fungicides, in vitro.
