Sheath blight and neck blast are the most important diseases affecting rice production in India. In recent years, resistance development in pathogens a new constraint has emerged due to repeated fungicide usage with single mode of action. The farmers are demanding for crop protection products of lower dosage and less toxic with nonthreatening environmental profile. In this context an attempt was made to search a new molecule of fungicide with novel and broad spectrum modes of action. In the present study various fungicides were screened against sheath blight and neck blast of rice.  Among the fungicides evaluated tricyclazole 45% + hexaconazole 10% WG @1g/l was significantly effective in reducing the disease severity of sheath blight and neck blast with PDI of 10.36 and 9.78 and an  yield of 5954 kg/ha as against a PDI of 65.18 and 61.06 and yield of 3061 kg/ha in untreated control. Tricyclazole 45% + hexaconazole 10% WG at higher concentration did not show any symptoms of phyto-toxicity till 15 days after application.
