Abstract :

Three fungicides namely carbendazim (0.05%), mancozeb (0.2%) and azoxystrobin (0.1%) and Pseudomonas sp. namely Ps 2 and Ps 3 were evaluated in vitro by using poisoned food technique and dual culture respectively for their antagonistic activity againt C. capsici. Among the three fungicides mancozeb (0.2 %) recorded 73.47 % inhibition followed by carbendazim (0.05%) which recorded 64.12% inhibition. The least inhibition (62.21%) was recorded in azoxystrobin (0.1%) treatment. In dual culture assay Ps 2 showed 93.41 % inhibition whereas Ps 3 produced 72.5% inhibition of C capsici.
