Now a days, fenugreek suffers from many fungal diseases out of which wilt caused by Fusarium oxysporum is becoming severe. In vitro evaluations revealed that, among bioagents tested highest per cent inhibition (78.71%) was observed in T. viride. Among botanicals, garlic extract recorded the mean maximum inhibition (46.87%). Jeevamrutha was found effective and recorded the maximum inhibition of mycelial growth (55.48%). In vivo study revealed that Carbendazim and combi product carbendazim 25% + mancozeb 50% were very effective in managing the disease completely up to 60 DAS.
