Twenty eight fungal endophytes were isolated from leaves, 33 from stem and 21 from root, resulting in a total of 82 fungal endophytes from apparently healthy groundnut plant parts and evaluated these endophytes against major fungal pathogens viz., Sclerotium rolfsii and Rhizoctonia solani by dual culture technique and against Puccinia arachidis by spore germination technique. Among the leaf endophytes, LFDwAC-7 has shown maximum inhibition of mycelial inhibition of S. rolfsii (46.30 %), R. solani (48.63 %) and uredospore germination of P. arachidis (52.88 %). Among the stem endophytes, SFBeBu-18 and SFDwAC-8 have inhibited the maximum mycelial growth of S. rolfsii (62.59 %) and R. solani (49.63 %) respectively. Against P. arachidis SFBeBu-18 (56.91 %) has shown maximum inhibition of and uredospore germination. Among the root endophytes RFDwSo-34 has inhibited the maximum mycelial growth of S. rolfsii (43.70 %), RFDwSo-33 recorded the maximum mycelial inhibition and uredospore germination of R. solani (49.80 %) and P. arachidis (47.84 %).
