Abstract:

Die-back and fruit rot caused by Colletotrichum capsici (Syd.) Butl. and Bisby is the destructive disease in chillies. The effect of Bacillus subtilis talc based formulation in managing the fruit rot disease and inducing resistance in chillies was investigated. B. subtilis strain Bs1 significantly inhibited the growth of C. capsici in vitro. Seed treatment with B. subtilis @ 10 g/kg seed followed by foliar application of B. subtilis @ 10 g/l on 30 and 60 DAP was effective in managing the fruit rot disease and increasing the dry chillies yield under field conditions. The effect of biocontrol agent B. subtilis on the induction of defense enzymes viz., chitinase and β-1,3-glucanase in chilli plants infected with C. capsici was investigated. There was a marked increase in the induction of defense compounds in response to pathogen inoculation in B. subtilis treated chilli leaves.
