Eighty strains of Trichoderma harzianum and T. viride occurring in sugarcane rhizosphere soil of sub-tropical zone were isolated on Trichoderma specific medium and tried screened in vitro against Colletotrichum falcatum. Highly potent ones (Th 37 & Th 38) were tried to manage red rot disease under field conditions. Healthy setts were treated by applying Trichoderma mixed culture (TMC) of T. harzianum strains grown in sterilized maize bran (2 kg) and subsequently mixed with sterilized press mud… 
Trichoderma-Mediated Suppression of Red Rot of Sugarcane Under Field Conditions in Subtropical India
TLDR
The application methods of talc formulations of these two isolates offer a feasible and effective option for large-scale application of these isolates for the management of red rot disease in sugarcane growing regions.
Biocontrol Strategies to Manage Fungal Diseases in Sugarcane
TLDR
Attempts were made to isolate and characterize antifungal genes/proteins capable of reducing the pathogenic potential of Colletotrichum falcatum, the red rot pathogen, and have yielded desirable results.
Management of red rot of sugarcane caused by colletotrichum falcatum went: A review
TLDR
Integration of cultural control, breeding for resistance, physical control, biological control, chemical control and biotechnological approaches will be helpful for management of red rot disease of sugarcane.
Increasing the efficacy of Trichoderma harzianum for nutrient uptake and control of red rot in sugarcane
TLDR
The application of Trichoderma multiplied culture (TMC) of T. harzianum strain Th 37 @ 20 kg/ha on the stubbles at the ratoon initiation stage increased the availability of nitrogen, phosphorus, phosphorus and potassium and resulted in significant growth promotion through improvement inRatoon initiation, number of tillers, cane height, and number of internode.
Explorations of Tolerant Trichoderma spp. as Plant Growth Promoter and Biocontrol Agent against Colletotrichum falcatum
TLDR
Overall, the isolated TS species can be rapidly and efficiently produced using the optimum conditions for effective management of CF with good plant growth promoter activty, thus serve as an eco-friendly approach for plant protection and yield increase, thereby economically useful for agricultural industry.
Biological control of sugarcane smut (Sporisorium scitamineum) through botanicals and Trichoderma viride
TLDR
Sett treatment with T. viride culture filtrate was superior among all the treatments as it improved germination, sprouting of clumps, millable canes and cane cane yield and yield in plant crop and ratoon crop, respectively.
ANTAGONISTIC SUCCESSION OF TRICHODERMA AGAINST RHIZOCTONIAL DAMPING- OFF ON TOMATO IN COMPOSTED MEDIA
TLDR
The results revealed that the incidence of Rhizoctonial damping-off of tomato was 65% and 67% in both rotations and a comparable reduction of disease observed on tomato grown in mushcom 1 and mushcom 2 during rotations particularly when amended with T.h. subtillus.
IDENTIFICATION OF SOURCES OF RESISTANCE TO SUGARCANE RED ROT
TLDR
The Erianthus genus possesses high resistance to red rot and should be used as parental material in breeding programs where enhanced red rot resistance is needed.
MOLECULAR ANALYSIS OF THE SUPPRESSION OF COLLETROTRICHUM FALCATUM BY TRICHODERMA HARZIANUM IN SUGARCANE
TLDR
Results confirm that T. harzianum was able to suppress C. falcatum in sugarcane by antagonistic mechanism and expression of newer proteins that could be related to defence / antifungal nature.
Trichoderma as potential biocontrol agent, its exploitation in agriculture: A review
TLDR
This paper reviews the already published information on Trichoderma as biocontrol agent, its biokontrol activity and its commercial production and application in plant disease management programs.

Trichoderma induced improvement in growth, yield and quality of sugarcane
TLDR
Application of T. harzianum andT.viride was found to be economical, non hazardous and useful for soil health and the benefit cost ratio suggests that by expending*Rs.
Towards an ideal method of inoculation for screening sugarcane genotypes against red rot caused by Colletotrichum falcatum
TLDR
The Parafilm method excelled the standard plug method of inoculation with a consistent higher success rate of disease development and provides much more stable disease reaction for a longer period from July to November in comparison to both the prevalent methods.
Mechanisms Employed by Trichoderma Species in the Biological Control of Plant Diseases: The History and Evolution of Current Concepts.
TLDR
Past research indicates that the mechanisms are many and varied, even within the genus Trichoderma, and in order to make the most effective use of biocontrol agents for the control of plant diseases, it must understand how the agents work and what their limitations are.
Trichoderma species — opportunistic, avirulent plant symbionts
Trichoderma spp. are free-living fungi that are common in soil and root ecosystems. Recent discoveries show that they are opportunistic, avirulent plant symbionts, as well as being parasites of other
A selective medium for improving quantitative isolation ofTrichoderma spp. from soil
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
COLORIMETRIC ESTIMATION OF INDOLEACETIC ACID.
TLDR
During a study of the inactivation of IAA in aqueous solutions, it was frequently necessary to assay at one time many samples where the IAA concentrations were low, or where the degree of significance of small differences in concentrations between experimental unite required evaluation, so it was desirable to re-examine the ferric chloride-sulphuric acid procedure.
