- Fungus: Gliocladium virens, Trichoderma harzianum, T. viride, Neurospora crassa, Aspergillus spp.and Penicillium spp. have been known to inhibit the growth of mycelia, sclerotia formation and germination of solani (Mew & Rosales, 1984).
- The most effective control of the sclerotial state of the disease was with Bavistin 50 WP (carbendazim) giving 87percent of the disease control which was followed by Brestan 60 WP (fentin), Calixin 75 EC (tridemorph),Difolatan 80 WP (captafol) and Benlate 50 WP (benomyl) with 77, 74, 72 and 32 percent disease control, respectively (Sinha, 1992).
- Fungicide: carboxin, TPTH and thiobendazole.
- Systemic fungicides, Orthocide 50WP (captan) 3g/l, Antracol 70 WP (promineb) 4g/l or Dithane M-45 (mancozeb) 2g/l reduced disease intensity up to 32-44 percent.
