A pot culture experiment was conducted in tomato and cotton to evaluate the compatibility of Atonik with insecticide and fungicide. Atonik was sprayed at four different concentrations (0.1, 0.2, 0.4 and 0.8%) along with monocrotophos (2 ml L-1) or Atonik 0.4% and monocrotophos (2 ml L-1) alone and at three different concentrations (0.1, 0.25 and 0.5%) along with Confidor (0.2 ml L-1) or Atonik 0.25% and Confidor (0.2 ml L-1) alone to assess the bioefficacy on 25 and 45 DAS, in tomato and cotton, respectively. To assess the compatibility with fungicide the above mentioned Atonik concentration with fytolon and carbendazim in tomato and cotton, respectively was tested. The results revealed that Atonik is compatible with tested pesticides. The insecticidal property of monocrotophos or confidor or fungicidal property of carbendazim or fytolon was not altered along with growth promoting activity of Atonik. The plants sprayed with Atonik or in combination with pesticides showed zero grades of phytotoxic symptoms.
