Pseudomonads are well known for their growth promotion activity and defense induction against the phytopathogens in plants leading to the disease incidence delay. Effect on the disease incidence with the interaction of different strains of Pseudomonas fluorescense were studied in tomato under protected and open conditions. The strains were isolated from different soil samples collected from various geographical regions of central Himalaya. Promising strains of Pseudomonas were applied as seed bio priming (SB), SB+ Root Dip (RD), SB+RD+ Drenching (DR) and SB+RD+DR+ Spraying (SPR) individually and in combination with different strains and evaluated for their effect on management of wilt caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici, an important disease of tomato in central Himalaya. Seeds were bio- primed with bio-formulated products RS-01, PS-01, AS-01, and consortia of different strains RC-05, AC-05, and PC-05 before sowing. Amongst the bio- products used AC-05 was found most effective in reducing the wilt incidence.
