An experiment was conducted at two locations at Navsari and Waghai for studying the efficacy of bioagents for management of sorghum grain mold. Six different treatments were studied among which four biological control agents along with control (water spray) and absolute control (no spray) were sprayed three times each at interval of 15 days from the date of commencement of flowering. Results showed Pseudomonas flourescens to be the best treatment for control of sorghum grain mold with the exception of per cent disease incidence at Waghai the treatment proved to be best treatment for the control of sorghum grain mold at Navsari and in pooled of two locations followed by Bacillus subtilis, Trichoderma harzianum and Trichoderma viride. Pseudomonas fluorescens was found to be most effective against sorghum grain mold.
