Abstract

Teak, the most widespread timber tree is affected by several diseases in nursery stage. Among the diseases, root rot caused by Lasidiplodia theobrommae causes severe losses (38.0%) and affect the growth of teak. Among the seven fungicides tested, Propiconazole 25% EC completely inhibited (100 per cent) the myceilal growth of L.theobrommae at 1000 ppm under in vitro condition. Root dipping of the teak seedling in propiconazole (0.1%) along with soil application of the T.viride significantly reduced (10.10%) the incidence of root rot in teak nurseries whereas in control plots the incidence was 21.83%.
