Abstract:
Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is a major Rabi pulse crop in India. Among various diseases, wilt caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri is major devastating chickpea disease that causes yield losses of 10 to 90 percent in severe cases. As it is both soil and seed borne, difficult to control by using fungicides. Hence a study was undertaken to determining efficacy of twenty native bacterial antagonists were evaluated against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri. Among Bacillus, isolate BRSN-B2 proved best with 57.93 percent growth inhibition, while Pseudomonas fluorescence isolate CRSN-PF1 was effective showing 50.74 percent inhibition of the pathogen.
