Abstract:

Early Blight of potato is caused by Alternaria solani (Ell. and Mart.) Jones and Grout is one of the most serious diseases of potato. Several management practices have been adopted so far to minimize the disease. But in present investigation based on laboratory and glass house condition revealed that soil application with Farm Yard Manure (FYM) and tuber seed dressing with bio-formulation provided higher germination, excellent growth as well as protection against early blight. The maximum germination percent is 83.33 and minimum germination inhibition percent is 16.67 in treatment 5 in which soil is treated with FYM and tuber are treated with Trichoderma harzianum @ 5%, the growth parameters i.e. plant height is also maximum in the same treatment. The minimum germination percent is 50.00 and minimum germination inhibition percent is 50.00 in treatment 2nd, 4th and 7th in which soil is treated with FYM and tubers are treated with Rhizobium @ 5%, Rhizobium @ 0.05% and Gypsum @ 0.2% respectively. The minimum plant height is in treatment 9, in which soil is treated with FYM and tubers are treated with Trichoderma viride @ 5% with respect to control.
