Abstract

A study was devised to evaluate the in-vitro antagonistic activity of the phylloplane fungal isolates against Alternaria alternata, causal agent of leaf blight of sesame. About 13 different phylloplane fungal isolates were screened to determine their in vitro antagonistic potential against A. alternata. Three of the isolates were found to be effective in controlling the growth of the test fungi. The significance of this study in biological control is discussed.
