Abstract: Twenty six antibiotic producing Streptomyces were isolated from soils of Cuddalore Tamil Nadu, India and were evaluated for their ability to inhibit plant pathogenic Rhizoctonia solani in vitro. It was found that the isolates having pathogenic inhibitory ability and also controls Rhizoctonia solani damping off in tomato in interested field soils. The Streptomyces isolates tested significantly reduced damping off severity in tomato. A variation in their effect on plant disease severity, percentage dead plants and plant biomass in the presence of the pathogen, was observed among the isolates.
