Abstract

Pseudomonas fluorescens was tested against pearl millet downy mildew disease by treating seeds with a pure culture and formulated in talc powder. The bioagent was also tested as a foliar spray to pearl millet under greenhouse and field conditions. Treated seeds increased seedling vigour and inhibited sporulation of downy mildew pathogen. P. fluorescens controlled downy mildew disease both by seed treatment and foliar application, but efficacy was significantly higher when seed treatment was followed by a foliar application. Seed treatment was better than foliar application alone.
