Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of bioagents and botanicals in vivo during kharif, 2017 to manage anthracnose caused by Colletotrichum capsici on chilli (Capsicum annuum L.).The anthracnose of chilli is one of the most devastating diseases. The various factors viz. nutritional, physical and toxicological factor showed wide variation on growth and sporulation of C. capsici. The effect of treatments on anthracnose disease management of chilli in field condition revealed that all the treatments showed significant reduction in the intensity and over control. Average disease intensity and its average reduction over control recorded with all the treatments were ranged from 19.84 to 31.18 per cent and 52.97 to 26.09 per cent, respectively. Antagonistic ability of Trichoderma viride and Pseudomonas fluorescens was tested by dual culture test against pathogen. Among them Trichoderma viride was found effective in inhibiting the growth of C. capsici. The toxicological factors like Eucalyptus oil, Neem oil and Garlic bulb extract were found effective.
