ABSTRACT

Soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merril) is a one of the most important oil crop in Maharashtra. Fungal phytopathogens are most important among the biotic factors that cause serious losses to agricultural crops. Sclerotium rolfsii is a plant pathogenic fungus frequently infected Soybean crop and leads into decrease crop productivity. The present research is concerned with the antifungal property of manganese nanoparticles used against the treatment of Soybean plant pathogenic fungi. We used manganese nanoparticles at concentrations of 00, 25, 50, 75 and 100 ppm. Sclerotium rolfsii a Soybean plant pathogenic fungus was used as test pathogens and treated with manganese nanoparticles. The experiment was carried out by adopting sick pot technique. We calculated Germination %, Root-Shoot Length, Seedling Vigor Index and Disease Incidences in order to evaluate the antifungal efficacy of manganese nanoparticles against fungal pathogens. The results indicated that manganese nanoparticles possess antifungal properties against these plant pathogens at various levels. Treatment with 50 ppm concentration of manganese nanoparticles resulted in maximum inhibition of test fungi. Results also showed that the inhibition property was decreased with the concentration of 25, 75 and 100 respectively. In summary, manganese nanoparticles showed potent antifungal effects on Sclerotium rolfsii. Thus, it can be effectively used against plant phytopathogenic fungi to protect the Soybean crop and their products, instead of using the commercially available synthetic fungicides, which show higher toxicity to humans. These results suggest that manganese nanoparticles could be used as an effective fungicide in agricultural and food safety applications.

Keywords: Manganese nanoparticles, Antifungal property, Soybean crop and Sclerotium rolfsii.
