Abstract:

The present study was carried out in vitro to examine the efficacy of eight different biocontrol agents viz; T. harzianum, T. viride, T. koningii, T. atroviride, T. virens, T. asperellum, T. hamatum, and Pseudomonas fluorescens and eight fungicides viz; thiram, hexaconazole, carbendazim, copper oxychloride, propiconazole, mancozeb, thiophanate methyl and metalaxly against effect of wilt pathogen Fusarium oxysporum f.sp lentis and on the growth promotion of lentil against. The results of the observation revealed that all biocontrol agents and fungicides promote the growth of lentil i.e. germination percentage, plumule length, radical length and overall vigour index over control. Among the biocontrol agents, the maximum seedling vigour index (1073.29) was recorded in T. harzianum followed by T. viride (981.83) and T. koningii (897.30). However, minimum seedling vigour index was found in T. atroviride (579.54) followed by T. virens (636.80). Among the tested fungicides, carbendazim was found to be most effective and resulted in maximum seedling vigour index i.e. 966 which were followed by mancozeb (897.83), hexaconazole (857.70) and propiconazole (803.33). While copper oxychloride (616.34) was least effective in enhancing the vigour index of lentil.
