Abstract: Fenugreek is an annual forage legume and spice crop and is widely known for its medicinal, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical properties. It is prone to attack by several diseases. A severe outbreak of wilt of fenugreek was observed causing considerable damage in the field of Saurashtra region. Experiment was conducted to find out effective fungicides for the management of fenugreek wilt. Different fungicides were tested against Fusarium oxysporum Schlecht. viz., systemic, non-systemic and fungicide combination. In laboratory screening of different Agro-chemicals, tebuconazole 25.9% EC was found to be quite effective in inhibiting the radial growth of test pathogen among systemic group of fungicides, while in non-systemic group of fungicides, copper oxychloride 50% WP and copper hydroxide 77% WP, in case of fungicide combinations tebuconazole 50% + trifloxystobin 25% WG were significantly inhibited the growth of test fungus in vitro. Fungicides found most effective in vitro were further tested in net house condition in pot culture. Among six fungicides tested, the combination of carbendazim 12% + mancozeb 63% WP showed minimum PDI followed by carbendazim 50% WP.
