In this study, the fifteen isolates of Trichoderma were obtained from rhizospheric soil samples of rice, soybean and mungbean from various locations of Pantnagar and Dehradun. These isolates were characterized based on their cultural and morphological characteristics. The cultural characteristics like colony colour, presence or absence of concentric rings, surface topography, pigmentation on the lower side of the plate, time of first appearance of green conidia and their growth at various temperatures were determined on the basal medium Potato Dextrose Agar. The morphological characters like conidiophores, their branching pattern, phialides number, their arrangement, conidial shape and formation of chlamydospores were observed under the microscope.
