Abstract: Fusarium wilt also known as panama disease caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense is one of the major constraints to banana production. The studies on the integrated management of wilt disease revealed that integrated treatment combination consisting of application of FYM (SA) plus S. marcescens (SA+ST) plus micronutrient mixture (SA+ST) significantly reduced the panama wilt incidence of banana (7.52 per cent) and increased the plant growth and yield to the maximum when compared to all other treatments and control. Further, the same treatment recorded increased rhizo sphere population of S. marcescens and reduced population of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense
