Among the ten herbicides viz., Glyphosate, 2,4-D Sodium salt, Butachlor, Pretilachlor, Oxadiargyl, Pyrazosulfuron ethyl, Bensulfuron methyl 0.6% + Pretilachlor 6%, Cyhalofop-butyl, Bispyribac sodium and Ethoxy sulfuron tested against sclerotial viability only two, viz., Butachlor and Pretilachlor were found to be effective in inhibiting sclerotial germination even at lower incubation period of 5 min. both in soil application and in vitro. Glyphosate inhibited sclerotial germination at higher incubation periods i.e., 18 h and 24 h. Rest of the herbicides tested were ineffective in inhibiting sclerotial germination.

Keywords: Sheath blight, Sclerotia, Rhizoctonia solani
