Abstract: The present investigation was carried out in the Department of Plant Pathology, College of Agriculture, (IGKV), Raipur (CG.). In the recent times, there has been a reversed interest in the search of Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR) for sustainable crop production. Biological control using PGPR strains especially from the genus Trichoderma and Pseudomonas is an effective substitute for chemical pesticides to suppress plant diseases. The present investigation was evaluated to growth promoting activities in pulse crop such as chickpea by using different thirteen combination of Trichoderma sp., P. fluorescens and Rhizobium sp. five treatment used which were P. fluorescens (spray) + Trichoderma sp.(soil), P.fluorescens(soil)+ Trichodermasp.(spray), P. fluorescens (seed)+Rhizobium sp.(seed)+ Trichodermasp.(spray), P.fluorescens (spray) + Rhizobium sp. (seed)+ Trichoderma sp.(soil). After 14 days of uprooting of crop found that significantly highervigour index in T1 (2794.69) treatment of chickpea. All treatment combination increases root length, shoot length and overall vigour index as compared to control in all pulse crops
