Abstract:

An experiment was conducted both in in vitro and in situ during 2018-19 at Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology And Sciences, Prayagraj. Under in vitro conditions, the shelf-life of fruit peel formulation of Trichoderma sp. and talc based formulation were evaluated up to 45 days at room temperature (25-30°C). Among them, pineapple peel formulation of Trichoderma sp. (2.6×10⁸ cfu/g) showed longer shelf-life than that of the normal talc based formulation (1.5×10⁸ cfu/g). Under in situ conditions, Trichoderma formulations were tested against the root rot (Rhizoctonia sp.) disease of chilli, cucumber and radish. Application of pineapple peel formulation of Trichoderma sp. showed higher germination per centage inchilli (74.98%), cucumber (91.64%) and radish (96.5%) when compared to talc based formulation. The present investigation concluded that application of pineapple peel formulation of Trichoderma sp. increased the grmination percentage, which was used as biofungicide for seed treatment, that efficiently fought against Rhizoctonia sp.


Keywords: Biological control, Pineapple peel formulation of Trichoderma sp.,Rhizoctoniasp., shelf-life, Talc based formulation.
