Glomus mosseae, Trichoderma harzianum, and Verticillium chlamydosporium were used alone and in combination for the management of wilt disease complex of pigeonpea caused by the nematode Heterodera cajani and the fungus Fusarium udum. Treatment of plants inoculated with pathogens increased plant length, shoot dry weight, number of nodules, and reduced nematode multiplication and wilting index. Simultaneous use of biocontrol agents against pathogens gave better control than their individual application. T. harzianum had an adverse effect on root colonizaiton by G. mosseae. Parasitism of nematodes by V. chlamydosporium was also reduced in the presence of T. harzianum. The highest reduction in nematode multiplication was observed when all three biocontrol agents were used together.
