Capsicum annum L. (Bell pepper) belongs to the family Solanaceae is an important fruit vegetable constituent that is used in many foods, adding flavor, colour, and is rich source of ‘Vitamin C’. An experiment was conducted at the Department of Plant Pathology, SHUATS, Prayagraj, U.P. during 2018-2019 to observe the effect of organic manures (viz. T1-Goat manure, T2-FYM, T3- Neem @ 500 gm per 10 kg soil in combination with 250 gm of T4-Neem+G.M, T5- Neem+FYM) against disease incidence of Colletotrichum capsici and Meloidogyne incognita in Capsicum. The organic amendments were incorporated in the pot 15 days before transplant of capsicum. The seedlings of 40 days of capsicum were transplanted prior to inoculation with 2 gm mycelium mat of Colletotrichum capsici per each pot. Seven days after transplant Meloidogyne incognita were inoculated @ 2 larvae per gm of soil in each treatment. Each treatment were replicated five times. Observations were recorded on disease incidence of Colletotrichum capsici at 30, 60, 90 DAT, the root gall population also observed at 90 DAT under pot condition. Among the treatments at 30 d.a.i. the percentage disease incidence of Colletotrichum capsici on the leaf was significantly reduced in T3(2.93), T4- (3.58) as compared withT5- (4.37), T1- (4.73), T2- (4.95) and control (12.34). The root gall population of Meloidogyne incognita was significantly reduced in Neem (17.60), Neem + FYM (37.00) as compared with other treatments including control.
