The experiment was conducted at the research plot of the Department of Plant Pathology, SHUATS, Prayagraj, U.P. during the kharif season of 2019-2020with RBD having nine treatments replicated thrice to evaluate the efficacy of some botanical extract and bio agents for the management of groundnut tikka leaf spot disease. Fungicides and bio agent used for seed treatment were Trichoderma viride@5% and mancozeb (check)@4g/kg, as foliar spray wereNeem leaf extract @ 20% Datura leaf extract @ 20%Tulasi leaf extract @ 20%Onion bulb@ 20% Debdaru leaf extract @ 20%Garlic clove@ 20% and Moncozeb@2g/lit. The treatments were applied thrice as spray at 30,45 and 60 DAS.  Trichoderma viride (S.T.) and Neem leaf extract (F.S.) were the most effective treatment to manage the tikka leaf spot disease, germination percentage, plant height, no.of leaves, and yield of groundnut (t/ha).
