Abstract:

Ginger soft rot caused by Pythium aphanidermatum is the most destructive and widespread fungal disease of ginger. It has drastic effect on yield causing upto 50% loss under favorable conditions. In vitro experiment was conducted for selection of superior fungicides for the management of ginger soft rot. Different non systemic, systemic and combi fungicides were evaluated against the Pythium aphanidermatum pathogen in in-vitro condition with three different concentrations, among non systemic fungicides, Mancozeb found best effective fungicide which shows 100 per cent inhibition of fungus growth at all three concentrations,. In systamic fungicides, the Carbendazim exhibited 100% fungal growth inhibition at all three concentration. Among six different combifungicides were evaluated, Carbendazim 12% + Mancozeb 63% WP and Metalaxyl M 8%+ Mancozeb 64% WG showed the maximum inhibition (100 %, 100 % and 100 %) of the test fungus at all the three concentrations (0.1, 0.2 and 0.3 %) respectively. Among the bio agents tested aginst P. aphanidermatum, T. harzianum (Th-4) inhibited maximum mycelia growth of the test fungus (70.40 %).


Keywords: P. aphanidermatum, non systemic, systemic, combifungicides, bioagents.
