Ten different strains of Pseudomonas fluorescens were isolated from coleus rhizosphere except the pf1 strain and identified by biochemical tests. These strains were screened against Macrophomina phaseolina (Tassi) Goid, the causal organism of coleus root rot. The results revealed that Pf1 strains recorded maximum inhibition of mycelial growth against control.
