Uttam Kumar Tripathi, Saurabh Sharma and Rohit Sharma
Lentil wilt a serious disease induced by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lentis cause heavy losses of the crop. A few compounds of plant origin have been proved to be possible alternatives to fungicides use. Out of 5 species tested plant extract from Azadirachata india, Parthenium hysterophorus, Lantana camara, Argemone mexicana and Ocimum sp. Were effective in reducing the redial growth of the pathogen. Fifteen seed samples were found infected by Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. Lentis. Presence of the fungus was detected in pericarp, endosperm and embryo by employing component planting and microtone techniques, disease appeared in all samples except two when seeds were sown in pots, confirming the seed borne nature of the inoculum of the pathogen.
