Bioderma is a bio-agent containing Trichoderma recently used as bio agent for controlling different diseases of various crops as well as giving good yield. The study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of bio-derma against field diseases and yield of jute during two crop seasons of 2018 and 2019 at Jute research regional station, Faridpur, Bangladesh. We found that, both of the growing season, the disease infestation was significantly lower in BJC-2142 (1.72% and 2.72%) followed by O-9897 (2.94% and 2.98%), respectively. Disease infestation was higher in exotic variety JRO-524 (6.40% and 7.45%), respectively. The study also showed that all the yield and yield contributing characters were not affected significantly except stick yield (/ha) in which stick yield significantly differed from variety to variety. The effect of bio-derma application was not so effective in controlling field disease of jute as well as yield and yield contributing characters.
