In the present investigation, efforts were made on the evaluation of different chemicals, leaf extracts and bio-agents against root rot disease of pea under natural conditions, at research farm of Regional Agricultural Research Station, SKUAST-J, Rajouri (J & K) in two consecutive years 2010-11 and 2011-12 in rabi season. Among these treatments, Ridomil mz was found most effective (8.56% DI with 117.31 q/ha pod yield). It was followed by carbendazim (9.55% DI with 103.65 q/ha pod yield). Whereas maximum disease incidence and lowest yield (38.96% DI and 78.80 q/ha) were recorded in control plot. Highest plant height was recorded in drek leaf extract (38.58 cm) followed by T. harzianum (36.21 cm). Maximum number of branches and maximum pod weight/plant were in carbendazim treatment (15.25 and 80.62 g, respectively). Maximum pod girth was in treatment T. harzianum followed by drek leaf extract (1.63 and 1.55), maximum shelling percentage was in Redomil mz followed by carbendazim (40.81 and 40.8). However, all treatments were significantly effective in controlling the disease and plant growth as well as yield in comparison to control.
