Castor (Ricinus communis L.) is one of the major oilseed crops grown all over India. The castor crop is majorly affected by the castor wilt disease caused by Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. ricini, which cause severe crop yield loses. Understanding the importance of the castor wilt disease, we conducted an in-vitro bioassay to test the commercially available fungicides inhibition effect on the castor wilt fungus F.oxysporum f.sp. ricini. The fungicides tested include carbendazim, carboxin, thiram, metalaxyl and blitox at recommended and half-recommended dosage against castor wilt fungus. Among the five fungicides tested by poisoned food technique, carbendazim was found superior at both recommended and half-recommended doses with 100 percent inhibition of the test pathogen.

Keywords: Castor, F. oxysporum f.sp. ricini, in-vitro bioassay, fungicides, inhibition
