Seven fungitoxicants were tested against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lentis. All these significantly checked the growth of the pathogen as compared to control. Carbendazim proved most effective fungitoxicant for checking the fungal growth (5.6 mm) followed by captan (9.9 mm) and hexaconazole and diniconazole. Seed treatment + soil drenching with carbendazim was most effective to minimize the wilt incidence (10.6%), plant mortality (4.5%) and gave highest grain yield (7.48 q/ha) followed by captan (15.9%, 6.3% & 6.10 q/ha). Hexaconazole and diniconazole were the next best fungitoxicants in order of superiority in case of disease incidence, plant mortality and grain yield.
