Abstract:
Fusarium wilt of banana popularly known as Panama disease, is a lethal fungal disease caused by the soil-borne fungus Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense (Foc) and is one of the most widespread and destructive banana diseases. Present study was taken up to evaluate efficiency of biocontrol agents against banana fusarium wilt to include in integrate disease management strategy as it is eco-friendly technique. The causal organism of panama wilt was tested along with various fungal and bacterial bioagents in dual culture method for testing the efficacy. Results revealed that Trichoderma viride reduced 84.1% radial growth of the causal pathogen followed by Trichoderma harzianum(82.2%) and Trichoderma hamatum(80.1%) while Pseudomonas fluorescens inhibited lowest radial growth (63.08%).
