Trichoderma viride, biological control with Trichoderma viride is an eco-friendly and has potential approach for managing plant diseases. It also aids in phosphate solubilization. Phosphate Solubilizing Microorganisms are ubiquitous, whose number varies from soil to soil. The present work on, ‘Effect of Trichoderma viride on Phosphate Solubilizing Microorganism in Paddy cultivation” was conducted under lower gangetic alluvial region from 2016-2017(December to May) at Agricultural Experimental Station of Calcutta University, Baruipur, 24 Parganas (South), West Bengal. The Rice variety “Satabdi (IET-4786)” from the department of Genetics and Plant Breeding was sown and recommended fertilizer dose of 80:40:40 kg per hectare. The experiment was carried out with six treatments replicated four times. Out of the six treatments, T3 which received T.V and P.S showed highest Carbon, Phosphorus and Potassium content and T6 showed highest Nitrogen content in the soil

Keywords: Phosphate, Trichoderma, gangetic, treatments, nitrogen
