Fusarium wilt (Fusarium oxysporum f. sp., ciceri) is one of the major yield limiting factors of chickpea (Cicer arietinum). For eco-friendly and sustainable management of the disease, two species of antagonists (Trichoderma virideand Trichoderma harzianum) and chemical fungicide (Carbendazim 50 WP) alone were evaluated against the pathogen. The study was carried out under laboratory conditions.Results showed that T. virideand T. harzianum alone or in combination significantly inhibited the mycelial growth of the pathogen. Different concentrations (10, 50 and 100 ppm) of Carbendazim 50 WP showed significant inhibition in the mycelia growth, and a concentration of 100 ppm completely inhibited the mycelia growth of the pathogen. Results of the study show that bio-agents significantly reduced the wilt incidence as compared to chemical fungicides.

Key words: Chickpea, Fusarium oxysporum f. sp., ciceri, Trichoderma viride, Trichoderma harzianum, Carbendazim.
