Chilli (Capsicum annuum L.) is an important vegetable crop, cultivated around the world. Among different fungal diseases of Chilli, anthracnose caused by Colletotrichum capsici has currently become important disease for yield loss. An attempt was therefore made to, isolation Rhizobium from the collected rhizosphere soil samples from research plot. Where, the populations of rhizobia were counted and were found maximum at post -sowing stage. Therefore, effect of green manures (Cowpea, Sunhemp, Dhaincha, Green gram, Black gram, Cluster bean) with two foliar spray of neem oil@0.5% used against Colletotrichum capsici of anthracnose in chilli and growth parameters of chilli. Seven treatments were under taken with three replications and data was analyzed using RBD. Minimum disease intensity was recorded in T₄ - Sun hemp+ neem oil (25.79%) and maximum Yield T₄ - Sun hemp + neem oil (90.23q/ha) followed by T₆ -Dhaincha+neem oil (26.63%) with Yield (90.03q/ha), T₅ - Cluster bean +Neem oil (28.63%) with yield (84q/ha),T₁- Cowpea +Neem oil (33.36%) with yield (79.47q/ha), T₂-Black gram +Neem oil (29.57%) with yield (72.20q/ha), T₃-Green gram +Neem oil (31.56%) with yield (65.70q/ha) maximum disease intensity was recorded in control (43.40%) and lowest yield (49.47q/ha).
