Abstract:

Present experiment was conducted to evaluate the antifungal efficacy of different biocontrol agents against Pythium aphanidermatum. The six isolates of Trichoderma viz., Trichoderma isolate1, Trichoderma isolate 2, Trichoderma isolate 3, Trichoderma isolate 4, Trichoderma isolate 5 and Trichoderma isolate 6 were studied for their antagonistic nature against P. aphanidermatum in vitrousing dual culture method. It was observed that all the Trichoderma isolates acted as antagonists and significantly reduced the mycelial growth of the pathogen (3.10 to 4.6 cm) over control (9.00 cm).
