Abstract:

Mungbean (Vigna radiate L.) is an important pulse crop in Indian continent. Mungbean is infected by several fungal, bacterial and viral diseases but foliar blight caused by Rhizoctonia solani considered as one of the most devastating diseases in the mungbean. The main aim of this study was to find out the effective fungicides and bioagents for the timely management of R.solani. Efficacy of tebuconazole 50% + trifloxystrobin 25% WG, carbendazim 12% + mancozeb 63% WP, T. harzianum and P. fluorescens were assessed under in vitro and in vivo conditions against R. solani. Among the treatments, the treatment consisting with tebuconazole 50% + trifloxystrobin 25% WG seed treatment (1.5 g/kg-1 seed) and soil drenching (1.5g/ lt-1 water) was found most effective in minimizing the foliar blight incidence (10.76%), disease inhibition (83.70%) and gave highest seed yield (14.20 q/ha-1) in mungbean followed by treatment consisting with seed treatment of carbendazim 12% + mancozeb 63% WP @ 2 g/kg-1 and soil drenching of carbendazim 12% + mancozeb 63% WP @ 2g lt-1 water (12.60%), (80.91%) and (13.50 q/ha-1) as compared to control (66.00% and 5.70 q/ha-1) respectively. while, in case of bioagents, seed treatment with T. harzianum@ 10 g/kg-1 and combination with soil application @ 10 kg ha-1 found most effective in minimizing the foliar blight incidence (25.13%) and disease inhibition (61.92%) followed by seed treatment with P. fluorescens@ 10 g/kg-1 and combination with soil application 10 kg ha-1 (33.10%) and (49.85%) respectively, as compared to untreated control.
