Groundnut (Arachis hypogea L.) is one of the important economic oilseed crops of the world. Groundnut productivity is obstacled by several diseases, among which stem rot caused by Sclerotium rolfsii is one of the major constraints. Fungicidal sprays for the management of the disease may not be economically viable and feasible. Hence, the present in vitro study was conducted with aim to know the antifungal activity of three bio-agents (Trichoderma viride, Pseudomonas fluorescens and Bacillus subtilis), Neem oil and amendments (FYM and Neem cake) against Sclerotium rolfsii causing Stem rot in groundnut. The study was conducted in Plant Pathology laboratory, SHUATS during 2020. Among the treatments, Trichoderma viride was most effective in inhibiting percent growth of Sclerotium rolfsii (64.62 %) and FYM recorded highest inhibition (51.58 %) at the 15 % concentration.

Keywords: Groundnut, Sclerotium rolfsii, Bio-agents, Neem oil, Organic amendments, Pseudomonas fluorescens, Bacillus subtilis
