Fungicides play a very important role in disease management as they are easy to handle and appllication, economical, quick acting directly on the diseases. The aim of this study was to assess the in-vitro activity of fungicides viz., Amistar (Azoxystrobin), Bayleton (Triademefon), Kavach (Chlorothalonil), Score (Difenaconazole) and Tilt (Propiconazole) were evaluated against the test fungus at the concentration of 5, 10, 20 and 40 ppm. Results indicate that propiconazole, difenaconazole was found to be highly effective showing complete inhibition at all the concentrations i.e. 5ppm, 10ppm, 15ppm, 20ppm whereas, azoxystrobin was next followed by tridemefon while, chlorothalonil was least effective to Fusarium moniliformae.
