Abstract:

Present study was undertaken on the stem/root rot caused by Macrophomina phaseolina (Tassi) Goid of Brinjal (Solanum melongena) during 2015-16. A total of 10 amendments were evaluated as pre- sowing application against M. phaseolina (sick soil), sowing susceptible brinjal variety Rakesh in pot culture under glass house conditions. The average reduction in mortality (PESR and PESM) recorded with all the test amendments was ranged from 17.11 (FYM) to 66.96 (neem seed cake) per cent over untreated control. However, significantly highest reduction in average mortality (66.96 %) was recorded with the amendment neem seed cake. This was followed by the amendments viz., cotton seed cake (61.76 %), groundnut cake (57.48 %), sunflower cake (51.90 %), poultry manure (47.18 %) and castor cake (46.04 %). Less than 40.00 per cent reduction in average mortality was recorded with vermicompost (39.22 %) and goat manure (30.69 %); whereas, FYM and compost was found least effective with significantly least reduction (25.09 %) and (17.11 %) in average mortality, respectively.
