In vitro management of corm rot of gladiolus caused by Fusarium solani

Author(s): MR Ade, VR Gupta and SB Zade
Abstract: Gladiolus is a significant cut flower with high market value. Numerous diseases can infect it, but one of the most significant ones is corm rot, which completely rots the corns and causes high yield losses. Most fungicides showed fungistatic and fungicidal activity. Among the seven in vitro tested fungicides, Carbendazim 50% WP @ 1%, Tebuconazole 50% + Trifloxystrobin 25% WG @ 0.05% showed cent percent inhibition of Fusarium solani and found most effective followed by Azoxystrobin 18.2% + Difenoconazole 11.4% SC @ 0.1% (83.24%) and Difenoconazole 25% EC @ 0.05% (82.59%). The treatment of Metiram 55% + Pyraclostrobin 5% WG @ 0.1% exhibited 55.09 percent growth inhibition of the pathogen followed by Propineb 70% WP @ 0.3% (40.37%). Minimum inhibition was recorded in Copper Oxychloride 50% WP @ 0.25% i.e. 24.17 percent and was follows least effective.
Among the tested bioagents Trichoderma harzianum (48.33%) proved the best biocontrol agent followed by Trichoderma asperellum (43.96%), Bacillus subtilis (40.63%) and Pseudomonas fluorescens was showed the 36.56 percent inhibition.
