When Trichoderma harzianum and Aspergillus niger, as biocontrol agents, were included with two fungicides, Foltaf 80W (Captafol 80%) and Blue Copper-50, for the treatment of pigeon-pea wilt, the disease was more effectively controlled than when the fungicides were used alone. Accordingly, decreased amounts of the fungicides could be used to control the disease without adversely affecting the growth of pigeon-pea.
