An experiment was conducted to evaluate cheap and locally available farmyard manure for mass multiplication of biological control agents in combination with talc formulations of native isolates of Trichoderma viride, T. harzianum, and Gliocladium virens. Talc formulations of respective isolates of the biological control agents were mechanically mixed with sterilized well-decomposed farmyard manure in polypropylene bags under aseptic conditions in ratios of 1:0 to 1:100.
