Abstract

Talc formulation of two biocontrol agents viz., Bacillus subtilisand Pseudomonas fluorescenswere evaluated against foliar diseases of urdbean. Their efficacy was compared with that of commonly used fungicide under field conMition. The result revealed that B. subtilis and P. fluorescens were equally effective as that of fungicide inreducing the severity of cercospora leaf spot and powdery mildew and enhanced yield in urdbean.
