The majority of farmers and mushroom growers in tropical region of country (Central India) has been experimenting with Oyster mushroom cultivation and are very worried about the very high temperature and susceptibility of mushroom crops towards the pathogens responsible for common crop diseases. This is the main constraint in the large scale cultivation of edible mushrooms like Oysters in this part of the country. As a consequence, ultimate yield of Oyster mushroom in Central India is adversely affected. Whenever, the crops fall prey to diseases, farmers try to control them by spraying some fungicides on them but in many cases they do not succeed. Basic understanding about the disease is a prior strategy to manage them. To safeguard the crop by various preventive and controlling measures which were elaborated by several workers with some basic aspects based on their research activity. Literature survey reveals that, the utility of imidazole substituted azoles in the fields of agricultural science and medicinal chemistry is ever-increasing. Owing to their importance in the field of agriculture as plant protecting and growth regulating agents, we thought it worthwhile to study the efficacy of newly synthesised heterocycles viz. 2-phenylamino-4-benzoyl-5-(2-hydroxy-5-chlorophenyl)-1,3-thiazole, 2-N-phenyl-N-[(2-hydroxy-5-chloro-phenyl)ethanonylamino]-4-benzoyl-5-(2-hydroxy-5-chlorophenyl)-1,3-thiazole, 2-[2-phenylthio-4-(2-hydroxy-5-chlorophenyl)imidazolo]-4-benzoyl-5-(2-hydroxy-5-chlorophenyl)-1,3-thiazole and 2-[2-phenylthio-4-(2-acetyloxy-5-chloro-phenyl)imidazolo]-4-benzoyl-5-(2-acetyloxy-5-chlorophenyl)-1,3-thiazole in the light of their significance towards growth promoting and disease controlling impact on Oyster mushroom crop. The results obtained in the present study are very encouraging.
