Abstract:

The collar rot caused by Sclerotium rolfsii is an important fungal pathogen in chickpea root disease complex causing serious losses. In the present study, efforts were made to prepare and test the bioefficacy of eight solid formulations and three liquid formulations against chickpea collar rot (In vitro and In vivo). The results indicated that, among all the eight solid substrates used, talc powder formulation was found to be the best carrier material to retain and support maximum propagules of Trichoderma compared to the remaining carriers. The mean cfu was highest in talc powder (540x108 cfu/g) followed by pesta granules (450x108 cfu/g) ; In liquid formulations, mean cfu revealed that mineral oil formulation was found to yield higher cfu (450x1011 cfu/ml). Among the eight solid formulations and three liquid formulations of Trichoderma assessed using soil application and seed treatment methods, talc formulation (51.0% and 65.9%, respectively), pesta granules (47.7% and 66.4% respectively in solid) mineral oil formulation (50.0% and 54.0%, respectively in liquid) gave superior disease control against chickpea collar rot.
