Abstract:

Stem and root rot disease caused by Macrophomina phaseolina (Tassi) Goid is the destructive disease in sesame. The effect of bioagents and newer molecules of fungicides were evaluated in managing the stem and root rot disease of sesame under sick plot conditions during 2018 and 2019. Seed treatment was done with bioagent Trichoderma asperellum at the rate of 4 g/kg of seed. Furrow application of T. asperellum (2.5 kg/ha enriched in 100 kg of FYM) at the rate of 250 kg/ha was also made uniformly in all the treatments. Foliar application of fungicides was done twice one at capsule initiation stage and another at 15 days interval. From the results, it could be inferred that seed treatment with T. asperellum at the rate of 4g/kg seed; furrow application of T. asperellum (2.5 kg/ha enriched in 100 kg of FYM) at the rate of 250 kg/ha followed by foliar application of Trifloxystrobin + Tebuconazole at the rate of 0.5 g/l at capsule initiation and second spray after 15 days interval was highly effective in managing the stem and root rot disease of sesame as well increased the seed yield also.
