Biological control is an eco-friendly approach for the management of crop diseases. Trichoderma isolate (Th azad), isolated from field soil is a new potential local isolate identified as Trichoderma harzianum. Trichoderma isolate (Th Azad) was tested against lentil wilt pathogen Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lentis (Fol) for it's abiotic stress tolerance and its antagonistic potential both in vitro and in vivo conditions. Th. Azad effectively inhibited the growth of Fol (69.23%) under in vitro and
