The present study was conducted to see the effect of some fungicides viz., Carbendazim, Mancozeb, Sulphur and conjoint Carbendazim and Mancozeb against Fusarium oxysporum in the division of Microbiology and Mycology of this laboratory. Poisoned food technique was adopted for carrying out this experiment for measuring radial growth of the test fungus in cm. All the treatments significantly reduced the growth of the F. oxysporum udum as compared to control but it was observed that the growth of the fungus were significantly less in 10,000 ppm concentration as compared to 10, 100 and 1000 ppm concentration of fungicides. On comparative analysis of different fungicides tested Mancozeb showed maximum inhibition of F. oxysporum, udum as compared to other fungicides. © 2010 Academic Journals Inc.
