Efficacy of fungicides and bioagents against Rhizoctonia bataticola causing root rot of cotton


Author(s): GB Jejurkar and CS Thakare

Abstract: Fourteen fungicides and two bioagents spp. were evaluated in vitro against Rhizoctonia bataticola, causing root rot of cotton. The results revealed that the systemic fungicides Benomyl and Carbendazim @ 0.1% and contact fungicides Mancozeb @0.3% and Thiram @ 0.2% completely inhibited mycelial growth of the pathogen. The biocontrol agent Trichoderma harzianum and Trichoderma viride @ 0.5% inhibited mycelial growth 73.77 and 75.55%, respectively.
The four fungicides and two biocontrol agents founded effective in in vitro were evaluated in in vivo (pot culture) against root rot of cotton during Kharif -2014. Results revealed that Thiram @0.2% recorded significantly maximum disease control (76.67%) and was at par with biocontrol agent T. harzianum @0.5% (73.34%) over all other treatments and control.
