Abstract

Eggplant (Solanum melongenae L.) wilt due to Fusarium oxysporum f.sp.melongenae causes much damage to the crop. To manage this disease through integrated approaches, an experiment was conducted with twelve treatments consisting of seedling root dip of carbendazim, soil application of Trichoderma harzianum, soil application of neem seed cake alone, Trichoderma fortified neem seed cake, Brassica tissue soil incorporation and integration of all the treatments. The reduction in percent disease incidence was ranged from 29.70 to 88.49 percent. Highest reductions in percent disease incidence was recorded with the treatment T11 (seedling root dip of carbendazim + soil application of Trichoderma fortified neem seed cake + Brassica tissue soil incorporation) i.e., 88.49 % followed by T10 (seedling root dip of carbendazim + seedling root dip with T. harzianum + Brassica tissue soil incorporation) i.e., 79.49 %
and T9 (soil application of Trichoderma fortified neem seed cake + Brassica tissue soil incorporation) i.e., 69.78 %. Percent increase in yield over the control was ranged from 38.41 to 115.39 percent among the treatments, and the highest yield increase was noticed with the treatment T11 (115.39 %) followed by T10 (104.74%) and T9 (98.27%). Lowest yield increase was recorded in T2 (T. harzianum alone) i.e., 38.41 per cent.
