Abstract : Discovering novel and effective microbial strains for increasing plant productivity; by enhancing the availability of utilizable minerals and by inhibiting an array of bacterial and fungal pathogens to plant is innovative approach in sustainable agriculture. There is particular interest in growing crops with little or no dependence on chemical pesticides and placing considerable weight on biological control. Fungal endophytes are a group of microorganisms associated with plants and have attracted a great interest to botanist, microbiologist and ecologist. In this study endophytic fungi were isolated from rice and were evaluated for their antagonism against Rhizoctonia solani, an important rice pathogen causing Sheath Blight disease in rice.

Keywords :Endophytic microorganisms; Graminaceous crops; Oryza sativa; Fungal pathogens; Phytochemistry; Antioxidant agents.
