Abstract:

Soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merrill] is an important cash crop in India. It is considered as one of the main oil crop over the world. The state of Madhya Pradesh has been declared as “soybean state”. The root rot caused by Rhizoctonia solani, most pathogenic fungi of soybean crop it attack on root of plant and destroy the proper functioning of the plant to take water (xylem vessels) and other nutrients upward (phloem vessels). The studies were carried out on Department of Plant Pathology, College of Agriculture, RVSKVV, Gwalior. The seven different plants parts viz., Allium sativum, Parthenium hysterophorus, Ocimum sanctum, Curcuma longa, Tagetes erecta, Azadira chtaindica and Eucalyptus boliqua were used in the investigation for controlling R. solani under in-vitro studied. Minimum mycelium growth of R. solani was recorded in A. sativum followed by P. hysterophorus, O. sanctum, C. longa, T. erecta, A. chtaindica and E. boliqua. Statistically, E. boliqua and A. indica were found at par with each other and statically significant at (p=0.05) with all other treatments. All tested botanicals significantly reduced the mycelial growth over the control except A. sativum and P. hysterophorus. Among the botanicals, minimum mycelial growth was recorded in O. basalicum followed by C. longa, T. erecta, A. indica, Eucalyptus boliqua. Statistically, A. sativum and P. hysterophorus were found at par with each other.
