In vitro screening of Trichoderma viride against Albugo candida - white rust pathogen of rapeseed-mustard
Keywords:Antagonist, Dual Culture, Rhizosphere, White Rust
Field experiments on white rust of rapeseed-mustard were conducted at Kakching located 45 km away from Imphal, Manipur during two consecutive rabi seasons (2014-15 & 2015-16) under organic farming. Using dual culture technique of Trichoderma viride and Albugo candida resulted in significant effect in all the varieties except in between M-27 (V3) & Ragini (V4). The percent inhibition of mycelial growth over control was found to be highest in V4 (58.78%) and lowest in local cultivar, Lamtachabi (V2) i.e. 33.17%.
