Even I had the same experience. I had planted Arka Anamika and NS 801 by Namdhari seeds, Bangalore. I had checked the plants and seen some black marks on the roots. I had planted about 160 Nos and removed about 20 Nos. On the advice of a regular gardener, I had applied TRICODERMA VIRIDE 1%, (powder) about 400 gram diluted in 40 litres of water and poured it around the plants. The result was amazing. After that there was no damping off. I had applied about 1 Kg.17:17:17 in total for the 140 plants.Now I am getting 1 Kg. every alternate day. I have almost all varieties of Namdhari seeds small packs which costs Rs.30/- Yard Long Bean (Cowpea) is also giving wonderful yield. I am getting the seeds from a dealer of Namdhari seeds in our town.
