Evaluation of an innovative formula as disinfectant solution for treating seeds or transplants for the purpose of protecting plants during their growth period against soilborne pathogenic fungi was carried out under greenhouse and field conditions. That achieved by adding this formula to plant seeds as seed coating or transplants immerging before sowing. This active mixture include four pharmaceutical commercial active ingredients (Miconazole + Chlorohexidine diglucanate + Chlorocresol + Hexamidine di-isothianate) which are recommended to be used for man health as oral or local treatments against some pathogenic microorganisms. This formula has been successfully applied against the major root rot and wilt plant pathogenic fungi under laboratory conditions. The obtained results were confirmed under greenhouse and field conditions against diseases incidence of tested plants, i.e . Tomato, Bean, Faba bean and Lupin.
This formula considered as applicable active treatment for protecting the agricultural crops against the root pathogenic fungi attacking plants during their growth period starting from sowing up to mature stage, prolonging their healthy life, especially it characterize as safe, cheap, easy applied without harmful residues for man and environment.
