Biological control of leaf blight caused by Alternaria tenuissima (Kunze ex. Pers.) Wiltshire in pigeon pea



Biological control of leaf blight caused by Alternaria tenuissima (Kunze ex. Pers.) Wiltshire in pigeon pea



Journal of Biological Control 16(2): 141-144



Trichoderma viride, T. harzianum, and Gliocladium virens were evaluated against A. tenuissima (causing leaf blight in pre-rabi pigeon pea) in vitro and under field conditions (Pusa, Bihar, India, in 1996 and 1997). In dual culture, T. viride overgrew the colony of A. tenuissima within 72 h of incubation, followed by G. virens and T. harzianum, which required more than 96 h to completely overgrow the colony of the pathogen.
