Out of seven different formulations of Gliocladium virens evaluated for their efficacy in preventing chickpea wiE-complex in glasshouse and field, six were found effective in controlling the disease. G. virens (Gv) remained viable in various formulations for three months at room temperature (20-3S0C) and six months at refrigerator temperature (SoC). The highest spore longevity (nine months) was observed with the formulation Gliocladium virens + Carboxymethyl cellulose. Seeds coated with various formulations were effective, except Gv+CaCO J in preventing chickpea wilt-complex in glasshouse and field. Of the various formulations, the preparation of Gv+CMC was found best in managing chickpea wilt-complex.
