Abstract Root-dip application of Bacillus subtilis, Pseudomonas fluorescens, Aspergillus awamori, Aspergillus niger and Penicillium digitatum resulted in significant decline in the rhizosphere population of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici. A significant decrease in the severity of wilt occurred with A. awamori (37.1\%) and P. digitatum (21.3\%) compared to the control. Root-dip treatment with the phosphate solubilizing microorganisms tested resulted in significant increase in the yield of tomato, being greatest with A. awamori and P. digitatum in pathogen inoculated (36\% and 33\%) and uninoculated plants (19\% and 23\%). A chemical fungicide gave 24\% better yield.
