The present study was planned to evaluate the efficacy of various fungicides, plant extracts, biocontrol agents and oil cakes against Macrophomina phaseolina causing dry root rot of chickpea.  Among the tested biocontrol agents against Macrophomina phaseolina, T. viride was found the most effective against the fungus followed by T. harzianum, Bacillus subtalis and P. fluorescens was the least effective in reducing root rot incidence. Among the fungicides carbendazim was found most effective and recorded minimum root rot incidence. Among plant extracts, garlic extract was found most effective in reducing root rot incidence followed by neem leaf extract. In the case of organic amendments, Neem cake was the most effective in reducing the root rot incidence while wool waste and goat manure was found least effective in controlling root rot incidence.
