INTEGRATED CONTROL OF A ROOT-ROT DISEASE COMPLEX OF CHICKPEA BY FUNGAL FILTRATES AND GREEN MANURING

Z. A. Siddiqui, I. Mahmood

Abstract


Seed treatment by fungal filtrates and green manuring were used for the control of a root-rot disease complex of chickpea (Cicer arietinum) caused by Meloidogyne incognita race 3 and Macrophomina phaseolina. Treatments by fungal filtrates and green manuring were more effective against M. incognita alone or with M. phaseolina but less effective against M. phaseolina alone. Individually green manuring of Cymbopogon citratus was best against both test pathogens while in filtrates Paecilomyces lilacinus gave better results than Aspergillus niger. In integrated control, combination of C. citratus and P. lilacinus was more effective than the combination of P. lilacinus and A. niger.
