Brinjal (Solanum melongena L.) is one of the most important vegetable crops being grown both during warm and rainy season in India. It has wide genetic diversity and is grown throughout the tropics and subtropics of the world. But the crop is attacked by a number of diseases such as Alternaria leaf spot, collar rot, damping off, early blight, fruit rot, leaf spot, phomopsis blight, bacterial wilt, mosaic and mottle and little leaf, among which leaf spot caused by Alternaria spp is found to cause serious losses throughout U.P and other states. A field trail was done in Rabi season in the month of December 2019, the effect of seedling treatment with T. viride, neem oil, castor oil, clove oil and its combinations were used to minimize the Alternaria leaf spot disease intensity of brinjal. Based on single trail, it was observed that seedling treatment with neem oil @ 2.5% + T. viride @ 2.5% was most effective against Alternaria leaf spot disease.
