Abstract

Trichoderma harzianum and Absidia cylindrospora were effective in inhibiting mycelial growth of S. sclerotiorum causing chickpea stem rot in dual cultures. Treatment of chickpea seeds with mycelial preparations of T. harzianum and A. cylindrospora reduced seedling mortality in pot experiments. Pre-application of T. harzianum, a week before sowing reduced the disease considerably in the field as compared to the application at sowing time.
