Tomato plants were grown in green house conditions and were studied under biological control of Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. lycopersici and Pythium aphanidermatum causing wilt and damping off in order to evaluate the relative water content, soluble protein content, total phenolic content and yield changes. Application of P.fluorescens+T.viridi +soil application had higher soluble protein content and total phenolic content in tomato. The highest increase in soluble protein and total phenolic content of 20 and 18 per cent over control leads to very lesser reduction in yield by the application of P.fluorescens + T.viridi +soil application during the presence of wilt and damping off diseases.
