Abstract:

Management of root rot disease of sesame caused by Macrophomina phaseolina (Tassi) Goid is challenging and requires an integral approach. The present study was carried out to evaluate the effect of bioagent, Trichoderma asperellum and organic amendment in suppressing the root rot disease of sesame. From the results, it was found that soil application of T. asperellum (2.5 kg/ha) mixed with Farm Yard Manure at the rate of 150 kg and applied as basal was effective for the management of root rot disease of sesame. Moreover, this treatment also scored maxiumum seed yield under field conditions. Soil application of T. asperellum (2.5 kg/ha) mixed with FYM at the rate of 100 kg and applied as basal was found to be the next best in managing root rot disease. This trend was observed during the two successive growing seasons of kharif 2019 and rabi/summer 2019.
