A selective medium for improving quantitative isolation ofTrichoderma spp. from soil

  title={A selective medium for improving quantitative isolation ofTrichoderma spp. from soil},
  author={Yigal Elad and I. L. Chet and Yigal Henis},
ATrichoderma-selective agar medium (TSM) was developed for quantitative isolation ofTrichoderma spp. from soil. Selectivity was obtained by using chloramphenicol as a bacterial inhibitor, and pentachloronitrobenzene, p-dimethylaminobenzenediazo sodium sulfonate and rose-bengal as selective fungal inhibitors. The TSM also contains a low concentration of glucose which still allows relatively rapid growth and sporulation ofTrichoderma, enabling convenient and rapid identification ofTrichoderma… CONTINUE READING
