Article
Full-text available
An investigation was undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness of carbon and nitrogen sources on mycelial growth and sporulation of Trichoderma harzianum (Th14). Among the tested different carbon sources viz., jaggery, honey, sugar, dextrose and peptone, significantly maximum biomass and sporulation was observed in honey (1190 mg; 7.06×108) followed...

Trichoderma harziaum (Th 14) was tested in vitro for its compatibility with different concentrations of commonly used newer fungicides. Six systemic viz., hexaconazole, tubunaconazole, difenaconazole, propinconazole, carbendazim and two contact fungicides mancozeb and captan were used, each at concentrations of 25, 50 and 100 ppm. A progressive inc...
Article
Full-text available
The growing demand for reducing chemical inputs in agriculture and increased resistance to insecticides have provided great impetus to the development of alternative forms of insect-pest control. Entomopathogenic fungi are potentially the most versatile biological control agents due to their wide host range. These fungi comprise a diverse group of...
Article
Full-text available
Development of insect resistance and risk to the environment due to indiscriminate use of conventional chemical pesticides for insect pest management favored the introduction of one of the new alternatives as biological control. Entomopathogenic fungi are one of the most versatile biological control agents for sustainable management. The most consi...
Article
Full-text available
The in-vitro effect of some commonly used fungicides, insecticides and herbicides on the mycelial growth of Trichoderma harzianum PBT 23 were evaluated. Nine fungicides, 6 insecticides and 7 herbicides were tested. A progressive increase in percent inhibition of radial growth in the fungus was observed as the concentrations of the fungicides increa...

Trichoderma is a promising candidate for the biological control of plant pathogenic fungi. Trichoderma harzianum PBT 23 was evaluated for their antagonistic activity against five different plant pathogens in vitro. The isolate was found highly potential in antagonizing destructive plant pathogenic fungi viz. S. sclerotiorum (mustard), R. solani (ma...

Article
Quarantine processing of 83,662 samples of introduced planting material during 2002 resulted in the interception of economically important fungal pathogens viz. Peronospora manshurica (Naum.) Syd., not known to occur in India; Puccinia helianthi Schw., having physiological races; Colletotrichum dematium (Pers. ex Fr.) Grove, C. gloeosporioides Penz...
