Root rot of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is caused by Fusarium solani. This paper describes the efficacy of Trichoderma spp. against sensitive and resistant isolates of F, solani by dual culture method under invitro conditions. Trichoderma virens, T. atroviride, T. viride, T. harzianum, T. koningiopsis, T. stilbohypoxyli,and T. pseudokoningii species were used for the antagonistic study. Results indicate that all Trichoderma species showed great antagonistic activity. But among them, T. virens, T. atroviride, T. viride showed 90% and 80 % antagonistic activity than others in case of a sensitive isolate of test fungus. The resistant isolate of the pathogen was restricting the antagonism to some extent.
