Abstract:

The antifungal effects of few selected essential oils and Trichoderma viride have been investigated in vivo conditions against Fusarium udum, the causal agent of Fusarium wilt of Pigeonpea. The treatments included Eucalyptus oil, Neem oil, Castor oil, Trichoderma viride each at 5% and other treatments were each of selected essential oils 5% in combination with Trichoderma viride 5% concentration. The treatment was given as seed treatment. An untreated replication served as control. Among the tested treatments, least incidence of disease was seen in plants treated with Castor oil +Trichoderma viride (22%) followed by Neem oil +T. viride (25%), Eucalyptus oil +Trichoderma viride (30.33%). The remaining plants were considerably more affected. Similarly the treatments also had shown good effects on plant growth parameters (height and number of branches). The average height readings of plants was recorded highest in Castor oil +Trichoderma viride (156.30cm) followed by Neem oil + Trichoderma viride (150.16cm), Eucalyptus oil +Trichoderma viride (144.90cm).
