Abstract: The experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of tricho-compost and its by-product tricho-leachate on germination, vigor, and suppression of seedling mortality of chili. Seven isolates of Trichoderma harzianum were screened by following the dual culture technique using Sclerotium rolfsii as a sample pathogen to find out the most effective isolates. Among all of the isolates, bioderma showed the highest inhibition of mycelial growth (71.41%), and the lowest mycelial growth inhibition was observed by Th3 (59.37%). That’s why bioderma isolates were used in this experiment for the production of tricho-compost and tricho-leachate. There were 6 treatments generated in this study with different doses of tricho-compost and tricho-leachate namely T1 (100g tricho-compost + 25 ml tricho-leachate), T2 (50g tricho-compost + 25 ml tricho-leachate), T3 (100 g tricho-compost), T4 (25 ml tricho-leachate), T5 (100g cowdung), and T6 (control). The result revealed that the germination percentage of chili was significantly increased by T1 (96.43%) treatment over control (T6 = 43%). The root length and shoot length were sharply increased by T1 (10.84 cm and 9.45 cm, respectively) over control T6 (3.67 cm and 3.31 cm respectively). The highest vigor index was recorded in T1 (1957.0) and the lowest vigor index was recorded in T6 (300.29). Furthermore, the seedling mortality was significantly suppressed by T1 (2.33%) over control T6 (8.67%). The present studies suggested combination effect of tricho-compost and tricho-leachate in T1 treatment is suitable for the production of healthy and vigorous chili seedlings which impact significantly in improving germination, vigor, and suppression of mortality chili seedlings.
