  • Ranjit Singh


Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is a largely produced pulse crop around the world. Sclerotium rolfsii causes collar rot, which is becoming more prevalent. Botanicals & bioagents may be used in IDM to treat this disease. This is a serious disease that results of a significant reduction in chickpea growth. Sclerotium rolfsii is a soil-borne pathogen that induces root diseases in a wide variety of plants. It is a highly critical pathogen that affects a large range of crops all over the world. Trichoderma species have been shown to be highly effective against a variety of pathogens. This review shows the efficacy of the Trichoderma species on control of collar rot of chickpea induced by Sclerotium rolfsii.
