Fusarium wilt of chickpea is a widely distributed and the most destructive disease caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri. The main objective of this experiment is to identify the effective Bacillus isolates against Fusarium oxysporium f.sp. ciceri under in vitro condition. A total of five Bacillus spp. isolates (TB1, TB2, TB3, TB4 and TB5) were isolated from rhizhosphere region of tomato and eight Bacillus subtilis isolates (BS4, B, KPB5, KK, BSD3, C1, G1, and B2) were collected from Department of plant pathology TNAU, Coimbatore. Totally 13 Bacillus spp. isolates were used for determining their efficacy against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri. The Bacillus spp. isolates showed variations in their antagonistic activity against F. oxysporum f. sp. ciceri mycelial growth. Among them the isolate B (B. subtilis) showed maximum per cent inhibition of 53.00 % followed by B2 (B. subtilis) (50.10 %), Bacillus subtilis G1 (48.97%) and Bacillus spp.TB1 (47.77%).
