This study was conducted at Spices Research Centre, BARI, Shibganj, Bogura, Bangladesh during Rabi season of 2018-2019 to find out the suitable control measures in controlling foot and root rot disease of fennel (Foeniculum vulgare Mill.).. Four fungicides, turmeric powder, poultry refuse and one control were the treatment. Foot and root rot incidence of fennel under different treatments ranged from 7.14 -29.39%, while the lowest incidence was observed in seed treatment and soil drenching with

Seed treatment and soil drenching with Provax 200 WP (Carboxin + Thiram) at 0.25% gave the highest number of seeds per plant (6588), weight of seeds per plant (20.57 g) and seed yield (2.01 t/ha) which was followed by seed treatment and soil drenching with Cabriotop (0.3%) and seed treatment and soil drenching with Autostin (Carbendazim) at 0.25%, and the lowest of these parameters were recorded in Control plots. So, farmers and researchers may Provax 200 WP (0.25%) or Autostin 50 WDG (0.25%) to decrease foot and root rot disease and increase seed yield of fennel.
