Competitive saprophytic ability of the sorghum stalk rot pathogens in fungicide amended soils uri icon


  • The competitive saprophytic ability (CSA) of the four sorghum stalk rot pathogens was estimated. Presence of fungicides in the soil as residues showed a profound effect iu reducing their CSA. Aureofungin has drastically reduced the CSA of all the stalk rot pathogens while carbendazim, quintazene and chloronab had severe effect. Methoxv ethvl mercuric chloride had the least effect
