Abstract

The seed-borne pathogen Fusarium moniliformae was isolated from cotton seed. The bioagents viz.,Trichoderma virideT. hamaiumT. harzianumT. longiforum and T. koningii were tested for their antagonistic property against F. monliformae by direct bit placement method. All the biological agents were significantly superior over control in checking the growth of F. monliformae. Among all the biological agentsT. viride was significantly superior than the rest of the biological agents.
