Pulses are major sources of proteins among the vegetarians in India, and complement the staple cereals in the diets with proteins, essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals. They contain 22-24% protein, which is almost twice the protein in wheat and thrice that of rice. Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is the world’s third most important pulse crop, after dry beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) and dry peas (Pisum sativum L.). Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. ciceris is a wilt fungus causing severe damage wherever  this crop is grown . It causes complete loss in grain yield if the disease occurs in the vegetative and reproductive stages of the crop. The treatments were Control (water irrigation), Neem oil5%, Eucalyptus oil 5%,Trichoderma viride 5%, Pseudomonas sp. 5%, Neem oil 2.5%­ + Trichoderma viride 2.5%, Neem oil 1.25%­ + Trichoderma viride 1.25% +Pseudomonas sp.1.25%, Neem oil 1.25%­ + Trichoderma viride 1.25% +Eucalyptus oil1.25%seed treatment was done. Among all the treatment in managing the wilt disease, Neem oil + Trichoderma viride +Pseudomonas sp.showed best cost benefit ratio of 1:2.89.
