Abstract:

Foxtail millet is a highly nutritious crop affected by several diseases, of which leaf blast is an important disease, hindering productivity. The present study was conducted to evaluate the in vitro efficacy of different bio control agents. Fourteen bio control agents which includes five bacterial, five bacterial endophytes and four fungal are evaluated under in vitro condition by using dual culture and volatile method. Among these P42 strain of Bacillus velezensis showed cent per cent inhibition of mycelial growth followed by bacterial endophyte Enterobacter cloacae (56.80 %) in dual culture method whereas Th14 strain of T. harzianum shows highest mycelial growth inhibition (77.6 %) followed by Th55 strain (76.81 %) in volatile method.


Keywords: bio control agents, mycelial growth, per cent inhibition, dual culture method, volatile method, Pyricularia setariae
