Abstract

Efficacy of eight different carrier materials and their combinations were tested to formulate a suitable Trichoderma harzianum based bio-fungicides for controlling foot and root rot diseases of brinjal caused by Sclerotium rolfsii in tray soil as well as seed bed soil under net house condition of Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI). The results from a series of experiments revealed that four combination of carrier materials based T. harzianum bio-fungicides such as (1) wheat bran + rice bran, (2) wheat bran + mustard oil cake (MOC) + rice bran, (3) khesari bran + rice bran, and (4) khesari bran +MOC+ rice bran were suitable for controlling the soil borne foot and root rot disease (S. rolfsii) of brinjal in tray soil as well as seed bed soil conditions.

Keywords: Trichoderma harzianum, Sclerotium rolfsii, brinjal seedling
