Bitter gourd (Momordica charantia L.) is one of the most important cucurbitaceous vegetable crops being grown both during warm and rainy season in northern parts of 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 Anthracnose leaf spot, Alternaria leaf blight, Cercospora leaf spot, powdery mildew, downy mildew and anthracnose, amongst which leaf spot caused by Alternaria spp. is found to cause serious losses throughout Uttar pradesh and other states. A field trail in Rabi season in the month of febraury the effect of seed treatment with bio-agents and Neem oil were minimize the leaf spot disease severity of bitter gourd. On the basis of single trail it was observed that seed treatment with Neem oil @2.5% + T. viride@2.5% was most in-effectual against leaf spot disease.

Keywords: Alternaria Leaf spot, bio-agents, neem oil, management, Trichoderma viride
