Specified concentrations of different
chemicals were tried as the sclerotial treatment for the
duration of 10, 20 and 30 minutes separately. Treated
sclerotia were planted on PDA medium in the
Petridishes. Sclerotia treated in distilled water for
different duration were kept as check. Colony diameter
of fungal growth was measured in all treatments and the
data very much clarify that treatment of sclerotia even
at 10 minutes of the higher tested concentration proved
completely inhibitory against the fungus in case of all
tested chemical excpt Acetic acid + Zinc sulphate (1:1),
Thiram and Indophil M-45.
