Garlic (Allium sativum L.) is the second most widely used Allium next to onion belonging to the family Amaryllidaceae. Garlic crop is affected by several fungal, bacterial and viral diseases, of which, bulb rot is caused by Fusarium proliferatum. Damage caused by this pathogen can causes 45% yield losses. The research was carried out for the management of bulb rot using organic amendments. Five organic amendments and a fungicide (treated check) were evaluated for their efficacy under in vitro and in vivo against bulb rot of garlic incited by Fusarium proliferatum, Carbendazim @ 0.1% as treated control was effective in the inhibition of mycelial growth (100%) of F. proliferatum followed by T3(Neem cake-46.98%), T5(Mustard cake-44.72%), T1(Vermicompost-37.68%), T2(FYM-34.29%), T4(Poultry manure-28.89%). The organic amendments and a fungicide (treated check) were tested against bulb rot under field conditions during Rabi 2017-2018. Among all the treatments, soil drenching with carbendazim @ 2g/lit (Treated check) was found most effective in the reduction of disease incidence followed by Neem cake, Vermicompost, FYM, Mustard cake and Poultry manure as compared to untreated check. The maximum yield was recorded in (FYM-51q/ha). The maximum number of cloves and bulb weight was recorded in FYM and bulb size was maximum in vermicompost.
