Abstract:

A greenhouse experiments were conducted at Regional Research Station, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Paiyur, Krishnagiri District during 2018 to 2020 on bioinoculants augmented disease-free seedling production in mango for the management of collar rot and root rot diseases through bioagents. The collar rot disease caused by Sclerotium rolfsii affecting mango seedlings in nurseries were effectively controlled by treating the mango stones with Trichoderma asperellum (2%) along with soil application ofT. asperellum (10g) + VAM (15g) + Vermicompost (250g) /sq. m and recorded the lowest incidence of collar rot (19.6 %). The root rot caused by Macrophomina phaseolina in potted mango seedlings were effectively controlled by the application of T. asperellum (10g) +VAM (15g) /graft in the pot mixture of Red soil (1): Sand (1): FYM (1) and recorded minimum incidence of root rot (2%). The per cent germination, root stock success was recorded more in the biocontrol treated pot mixture compared to untreated one.
