Lentil (Lens culinaris L.) is an important edible pulse crop. It is an important source of protein for human diet, plays a vital role as a rotational crop and enhances soil fertility. Sclerotium rolfsii causing collar rot disease on lentil crop is an important polyphagous pathogenic fungus causing substantial losses in quality and productivity (Punja and Grogan, 1988). In this study a combination of management practices such as addition of organic amendments (e.g. FYM and press mud), oilcakes (mustard cake and neem cake), biological control agents (e.g. Pseudomonas fluorescens, Trichoderma harzianum), soil drenching with fungicides (Carbendazim) were applied for the control of collar rot disease of Lentil. It was recorded from this study that the lowest percent disease incidence (6.66%) and maximum yield was recorded in (T1) seeds treated with Trichoderma harzianum and Pseudomonas fluorescens. Other treatments also showed significant decrease in percentage disease incidence except (T4) soil application of mustard oilcake.

Keywords: Lentil, Sclerotium rolfsii, Trichoderma harzianum, Pseudomonas fluorescens
