Author(s): Dr. OP Sharma and Manju kumari
Abstract: Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is one of the important pulse crops of India. Occurrence of dry root rot caused by Rhizoctonia bataticola (Taub.) Butler is emerging as a serious biotic constraint in recent years for successful and profitable cultivation of chickpea the efficacy of various fungicides viz. Carbendazim, Thiram, Carboxin, Phenylpyrrole, Thiophnate Methyl and Chlorothalonil as seed treatment and soil application were evaluated against Rhizoctonia bataticola causing root rot disease of Chickpea. Management study of root rot disease of chickpea done under both pot and field condition. Seed treatment with Carbendezim was proved most effective in minimizing the disease as well as pathogen population in soil followed by Thiophnate Methyl. Seed treatment with Chlorothalonil was found least effective in minimizing the disease as well as pathogen population in soil.
