During the present studies, antagonists viz., Trichoderma viride and T. harzianum were used for antagonize the growth of pathogenic fungi of Mungbean viz. Fusarium oxysporum and Rhizoctonia bataticola. The inhibition in colony of F.oxysporum was found 30.66% by T.viride and in the R.bataticola was 40%. The T. harzianum showed inhibition in F.oxysporum 42.54% and in R. bataticola 48.14% after 3 days of inoculation. The antagonists viz., T.harzianum and T.viride were also found to affect the growth response of Mungbean (Vigna radiata L.). The germination of Mungbean seeds was found maximum (80%) in T. harzianum and T. viride (57.77%) in comparison to control (23.33%). The pathogen growth inhibitory ability of different Trichoderma strains of same species and among different species varied significantly. Plant growth promotion measured as root and shoot lengths were significantly higher than control.
