In response to heavy infestations of soil borne wilt and root rot causing fungi along with root knot nematodes both alone and in combination which result in severe damage to wide range of horticultural crops in Western Uttar Pradesh, India. The farmers of the region out of ignorance and also in a notion to get instant results were found to be indiscriminately using toxic chemical pesticides which, in turn, caused heavy damage to the soil, plant and finally to human health by wrecking their immune system.

With the mission to combat the above maladies and also for improving the soil, plant and human health, the authors have successfully carried out an evolved IPM package comprising of safe, cost effective components viz. fungal bioagents, neem oil seed cake, botanicals and VA Mycorrhiza.
