Abstract:

Pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum L.) is an important food and forage crop. It is locally known as bajra, combo, sajja, bari, ganti or kambam. Leaf spot disease of pearl millet is a common foliar disease caused by Drechslera setariae. A laboratory experiment was conducted to study the antifungal activity of four biocontrol agents viz., Trichoderma harzianum, Trichoderma viride, Pseudomonas fluorescens and Bacillus subtilis against Drechslera setariae employing dual culture technique. All the biocontrol agents checked the growth of the Drechslera setariae as compared to control. Maximum growth inhibition was observed in Trichoderma viride (72.22 %) followed by T. harzianum (67.64 %) and P. fluorescens (59.44 %) whereas, Bacillus subtilis (45.28 %) showed least growth inhibition among all the biocontrol agents.
