Abstract

Ground nut (Arachis hypogea L.), is one of the most important oil seed crops of India, is affected by several soil borne diseases viz., root rot and stem rot. A study was conducted for the development of IPM module for the management of these soil borne fungicides using fungicides and biocontrol agents. Among the nine modules tested, module with deep summer ploughing using mould board plough combined with soil application of Trichoderma @ 4 kg/ ha enriched in 250 kg FYM/ha and seed treatment with Tebuconazole 2DS recorded minimum incidence of stem rot (9.5 %) with a pod and haulm yield of 2566 kg/ha and 6428 kg /ha respectively. This treatment also recorded minimum incidence of late leaf spot (Grade 4) and rust (Grade 5).
