ABSTRACT
Biological control of soil-borne plant pathogens is a potential alternative to the use of chemical pesticides, which are harmful to environment. The rhizospheric fungal isolates were undertaken for the biocontrol. The fungal isolates of chickpea rhizosphere were evaluated for their biocontrol potential against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri under invitro study (dual culture method) and sick soil (pot) condition. Under in-vitro study, isolate Trichoderma reesei showed the strongest antagoinistic activity towards Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri in dual cultural followed by Trichoderma viride, Trichoderma harzianum, Aspergillus nidulans, Rhizopus oryzae, Curvularia clavata, Alternaria alternata and Mucor spp.

Key words : Biocontrol, Chickpea, Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri, Isolation.
