Abstract:
Pot experiment study on management of collar rot, root rot and wilt of chickpea revealed that, total, pre- and post-emergence seedlings mortality due to Sclerotium rolfsii, Rhizoctonia solani and Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. ciceri were reduced by seed soaking treatment with Zinc chloride followed by Calcium carbonate, Manganese sulphate and Boric acid, whereas these treatments were statistically at par with each other. Seed soaking treatment with Zinc chloride was found to be best and showed 17.78 per cent average incidence of wilt complex followed by Calcium carbonate (22.22%) and Manganese sulphate (25.56%). Huang and Kuhlman (1991) found that chemical amendment with 30 g CaCl2 controlled more than 50 per cent damping off of slash pine. Gupta (1999) stated that Zinc was greatly inhibited the growth of S. rolfsii, R. solani and F. oxysporum f.sp. ciceri. Sarkar et al. (2000) reported that Boron, Zinc and Iron like micronutrients significantly reduced the incidence of Fusarium wilt of sunhemp from 47 to 78 per cent over control.
