Pulses are economically and nutritionally important crop in India. It continuously faces biotic and abiotic challenges. In this study we analysed the potentiality of Trichoderma spp. in germination and development of pulses. The pulse crops were taken as Pea, Lentil, chickpea and Red gram. All pulse seeds were treated with Trichoderma spp. suspension before sowing. We analysed the effect under parameters such as germination, total average length. Total average root and shoot length individually to check the effect of treatments in growth promotion of root and shoot. Fresh weight and dry weight was also recorded to observe more response of treatment on plants. All treatments were tested against a control which is untreated. Significant difference was observed in response of treatment between treated and untreated plants. It is showing positive effect on growth and development of plants under above parameter. These results will help in exploring more in the future.

Keywords: Trichoderma spp, Seed treatment, Pea, Lentil, Red gram, Chickpea.
