Abstract:

Wilt disease of chickpea caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri is serious biotic constraints for Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) production. These are most important and widespread soil and seed-borne diseases of chickpea grown where the climate is relatively dry and warm. To find out the effective management of the diseases through chemicals and soil application of biocontrol agents, the field studies were conducted during Rabi season of 2012-13, 2013-14 and 2014-15. Seed treatment checked the incidence of wilt and increased the yield of chickpea. However, combined applications of seed treatment with Trichoderma sp. as well as soil application significantly checked the disease incidence (3.80 %) and increased the grain yield (1352 kg/ha). The pooled result of three years revealed Minimum wilt incidence of 3.78 per cent recorded in carboxin + Thiram @ 2 g/kg seed + soil application of T. harzianum @ 4 kg/ha (T7) at the time of sowing and maximum grain yield 1352 kg/ha was recorded in T. harzianum @ 4 g/ha of seed as a seed treatment + soil application of T. harzianum @ 4 kg/ha (T6) at the time of sowing.
