The genus Trichoderma comprises number of species having plant growth promotion potential. Six Trichoderma species were evaluated for regulatory effect on seed germination. Soybean seeds were coated with spore suspension of each test species of Trichoderma supplemented with 2% of starch (w/v) as an adhesive. Germination of seeds was recorded daily for six days. Among tested species, seed treatment with T. harzianum and T. hamatum showed 96% germination while T. viridi, T. aureoviride and T. koningii were also significantly effective as compared to control. T. pseudokoningii was the least effective to enhance the seed germination percentage. Moreover highest germination index (6.84) was recorded after treatment with T. harzianum and T. hamatum which confined to better germination. Seed treatment with T. harzianum and T. hamatum can enhance percentage and early germination in soybean seeds. Further investigations however are required to study the effect of Trichoderma spp. on physiology of Soybean plants and seed production.
