The highest incidence /mortality of tuberose plants was observed when 12.5-15g. Of inoculums were used.Test conducted in vitro suggested that clayey soul was most favourable for stem rot infection in tuberose plant.Incidence of the disease ws very low in sandy soil indicating its unsuitability for sclerotium rolfsii to cause collar rot.
