Laboratory evaluation of fungicides against Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn, the cause of sheath blight of rice



Laboratory evaluation of fungicides against Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn, the cause of sheath blight of rice



Agricultural Science Digest Karnal 19(3): 211-213



Eight fungicides were tested in vitro against Rhizoctonia solani, at different concentrations on PDA. Propiconazole (Tilt), carbendazim (Bavistin) and cyproconazole (Atemi) were highly toxic and showed ED50 <10 micro g/ml or micro l/litre. Higher concentrations of carbendazim (5 micro g/ml) and propiconazole (10 micro l/litre) resulted in 100% inhibition of mycelial growth. Hexaconazole (Contaf), epoxiconazole (Opus) and carboxin (Vitavax) were next in order of efficacy.
