During the present investigations on charcoal rot caused by Macrophomina phaseolina (Tassi) Goidof Brinjal (Solanum melongena L.), various experiments were conducted at the Department of Plant Pathology, College of Agriculture, Parbhani during 2014-2015 and 2015-16 to fulfill the objective to study the integrated management of stem and root rot disease (M. phaseolina) of brinjal (Pot culture). The experiment was conducted with CRD statistical design and all the treatments were replicated thrice. Overall 14 treatments were evaluated as against M. phaseolina (sick soil), sowing susceptible brinjal variety Rakesh in pot culture under screen house conditions. Study shows that all the treatments significantly improved the percentage of seed germination over untreated control (sick soil). On the other hand the percentage reduction in pre-emergence and post-emergence mortalities was ranged from 53.04 to 96.64 per cent and 51.95 to 94.06 per cent, respectively. However, Carbendazim 12%+ Mancozeb 63% + Trichoderma viride + Neem seed cake + A. indica and Carbendazim 50 WP + T. harzianum + Cotton seed cake + Z.officinale treatment were found most effective with significantly least pre-emergence seed rot and post emergence seedling mortality.

Keywords: Brinjal, M. phaseolina, Root rot, Stem rot etc.
