Abstract :

Available biocontrol agents were evaluated either alone or in various combinations for finding out their efficacy in suppressing bacterial wilt incidence and promoting plant growth of Naga king chilli (Capsicum chinense Jacq.) under field conditions. Among all tested combination, the treatment containing combination of T. viride +P. fluorescens was found most effective in reducing the incidence of bacterial wilt in field condition. Highest per plant yield was also recorded from the same combination and it was followed by T.viride. However, the commercially available fungicide Copper oxychloride (0.1%) showed the lowest (11.11%) disease incidence in field condition.
