Abstract:

Results obtained in the experiments conducted to find out effect of seed bio-priming on management of sheath blight and sheath rot diseases of rice in field condition revealed that seed bio-primed with Trichoderma harzianum applied at imbibition was proved to be an excellent bio-agent to manage sheath blight (Rhizoctonia solani) with minimum disease incidence (25.67%) and severity (21.63%) whereas Pseudomonas fluorescens applied at imbibition significantly manage sheath rot (Sarocladium oryzae) with minimum disease incidence (28.67%) and severity (23.41%). Similarly, significantly higher grain yield (4505 kg ha-1) was recorded in seed bio-primed with P. fluorescens applied at imbibition.
