INHIBITORY EFFECT OF FORMULATED BIOCONTROL AGENTS TOGETHER WITH REDUCED RATES OF IPRODIONE AGAINST POTATO WHITE MOLD
Keywords:Bahar, Coniothyrium minitans, Hamedan, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, Trichoderma spp.
This study was conducted during the cropping seasons of 2016 and 2017 to evaluate inhibitory effect of ConiothyriumÂ minitans as well as three isolates of Trichoderma viz. Trichoderma ceramicum, T. atroviride and T. viridescens together with reduced rates of iprodione against Sclerotinia sclerotiorum. The results showed that in both years, inhibitory effect of each biocontrol agents together with reduced application of iprodione at 80% and 60% the recommended rate was statistically on par with Â application of the fungicide at 100% the factory advised rate.
