The results revealed that among the chemicals Difenconazole 25 EC (Score) @ 0.1 % was found effective in reducing the disease with a per cent disease reduction over control of (62.23) was onpar with (Tebuconazole + Trifloxystrobin) @ 0.05 % (60.51). Among the bio-agents tested Trichoderma harzianum was found effective with the per cent disease reduction over control of (54.47) followed by treatment with a combination of Trichoderma harzianum and Pseudomonas flouroscens (41.91).
