Abstract:

Pomegranate wilt disease incited by Ceratocystis fimbriata Ell. And Halst. Is one of the important diseases of pomegranate adversely affecting crop cultivation in all major growing regions of Karnataka. The pathogen being soil borne preventive measures are of prime importance to manage this disease. Hence present in vitro studies were undertaken. The results obtained on fungicides evaluation revealed among the different systemic fungicides tested, cent per cent inhibition of mycelial growth of C. fimbriata was recorded in propiconazole followed by hexaconazole 94.65 per cent, respectively followed by non-systemic fungicides Thiram (74.35 %) followed by copper oxy chloride (70.52 %). Among the different bio agents tested against C. fimbriata, T. harzianum was found to be the most effective with the highest inhibition of mycelial growth (88.77 %) followed by T. viride (86.60 %) and P. fluorescens (66.33 %). Bacillus subtilis was found less effective with (54.88 %) inhibition.
