In vitro studies on compatibility of an indigenous strain of Pseudomonas putida (RFP-13) were undertaken with the commonly used fungicides, insecticides and plant extracts for plant protection at different concentrations by poisoned food technique. Results revealed that there was minimum inhibition of P. putida with carbendazim (Bavistin 50WP), carbofuran (Furadan 3G) and neem seed kernel extract whereas complete inhibition was observed with mancozeb (Dithane M45), captan (Captaf 50WP), indoxacarb (Avaunt 14.5SC), novaluron (Rimon 100EC), Nimbicidine® (0.03% Azadirachtin) and eucalyptus leaf extract.
