Studies were conducted to know the efficacy plant extracts and bio-agents against Alternaria leaf spot of blond psyllium/isabgol (Plantago ovata Forssk.) caused by Alternaria alternata which has become an severe problem in isabgol growing areas of Rajasthan. Among five plant extracts tested, garlic (10%) was recorded most effective in inhibiting mycelia growth (74.30%) as well as in reducing disease intensity (53.26%) by applying two sprays at 7 days interval. Among four bio-agents, Trichoderma viride was observed highly effective in inhibiting mycelial growth (79.20%) and in reducing disease intensity (41.84%).

Keywords: Blond psyllium, Isabgol, Alternaria alternata, Plant extract, Bio-agent.
