Abstract

A pot experiment was conducted to determine the influence of inorganic fertilizers on collar rot lentil (Lens culinaris) caused by Sclerotium rolfsii. The pots were filled with autoclaved soil and inoculated with multiplied on straw + wheat bran @ 10 gram/pot. Urea @ 80 kg/ha, ammonium sulphate @ 50 kg/ha, calcium nitrate @ 40 kg/ha, zinc sulphate @ 50 kg/ha and calcium carbonate @ 40 kg/ha were mixed in inculated soil of pot before sowing. Amongest all fertilizers, Urea @ 80 kg/ha gave maximum collar rot incidence in comparison to others.
