Thirty-five strains ofTrichoderma viride andT. harzianum were screened for their antagonistic ability against the rice sheath blight pathogen,Rhizoctonia solani. The strains that inhibited/overgrew the phytopathogenic fungus were considered effective. Light microscopic studies showed the antagonism of the hyphae of effectiveTrichoderma strains towards their… CONTINUE READING
