The modern intensive Agricultural practices have considerably raised the output but created problems like land and environmental degradation and pollution. Besides, this contamination of food products and pesticidal residue in food has caused much panic among the consumers and also the producers. Hence, it is necessary to find out innovative and suitable alternative technology like biological control of pests and diseases. Recently, Paecilomyces lilacinus based different formulations are used for the control of nematode diseases, which is economical, ecofriendly and sustainable in the long run. Among the different bioagents used in the tomato ecosystem, P. lilacinus is extensively used as seed dressing bioagent against many soil borne diseases, however, its usage against foliar diseases is limited. Isolates significantly varied with respect to colony characters, sporulation of the isolate and conidial characters. Based on the colony characters observed Tadakoda isolate had initially white colony later it turned to pinkish smooth colony. It produced single, round to oval conidia on phailides which sporulated early.

Keywords: Paecilomyces lilacinus, Bioefficacy and variability.
