Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceris is a ubiquitous seed and soil borne pathogen in several crops. It survives in the soil without host from several years. To manage the wilt pathogen is such as a difficult in crop management. The rhizobacteria as grouped under two categories by the cultural, morphological and biochemical characters. Ten isolates (CPs1 to CPs9) were identified as Pseudomonas sp. by medium to strong production of KOH, HCN production and siderophore synthesis. Another ten isolates of (CBs1 to CBs10) identified as brown creamish and serrated margins with production of catalase and citrate. Under in vitro efficacy, Pseudomonas isolates CPs3 showed maximum inhibition per cent of 54.07% followed Pf1 at 51.47%. In Bacillus sp. isolate CBs5 showed maximum inhibition per cent of 61.85% and followed CBs1 recorded 59.25% and fungal antagonistic activity Tv1 showed maximum mycelial inhibition per cent of 67.77% followed by CTs3 at 62.22%. Carbendazim recorded maximum mycelial growth inhibition of 86.66%.

Keywords: Rhizobacteria, Pseudomonas sp., Carbendazim, Siderophore and CPs3
