The Potential of Antagonistic Organisms for Bio-Control of Neovossia indica Causing Karnal Bunt of Wheat


  • Indian Agricultural Research Institute, Division of Plant Pathology, New Delhi, 110012, India


Neovossia indica (Mitra) Mundkur, causing Karnal bunt of wheat is mainly a soil-borne pathogen, whose teliospores germinate and produce a crop of allantoid secondary sporidia, which become air-borne and cause infection (Dhaliwal and Singh, 1986). Seed treatment and foliar spray fungicides have been tested to control the disease (Singh et al., 1985, 1991).
