Trichoderma harzianum Rifai is a well-known biological control agent (BCA) effective against a wide range of phytopathogens. Since colonization and persistence in the target niche is crucial for biocontrol effectiveness we aimed to: (i) shed light on the olive roots colonization process by T. harzianum CECT 2413, (ii) unravel the fate of its biomass upon application, and (iii) study the in planta interaction with the soil-borne pathogen Verticillium dahliae Kleb. Fluorescently-tagged… 

Colonization of Beauveria bassiana 08F04 in root-zone soil and its biocontrol of cereal cyst nematode (Heterodera filipjevi)

Beauveria bassiana 08F04 isolated from the surface of cysts is a promising biological control agent for cereal cyst nematodes and its label is aimed for efficient monitoring of colonization in the soil.

The Role of Microbial Inoculants on Plant Protection, Growth Stimulation, and Crop Productivity of the Olive Tree (Olea europea L.)

A literature review of articles published during the last 10 years about the role of beneficial microbes on olive tree plant growth and productivity, pathogen control, and alleviation from abiotic stress finds that the endophytic bacterial species Pseudomonas fluorescens and Bacillus sp.

Antagonism of selected fungal species against Macrophomina phaseolina (Tassi) Goid, causing charcoal rot of mungbean

Fungal agents with promising antagonism in dual culture were further investigated for disease suppression and plant growth promotion effects on five selected mungbean varieties in net house and significantly curbed the disease severity percentage and showed positive effects on seed germination percentage and other plant growth parameters.

Plant Biostimulants: New Insights Into the Biological Control of Verticillium Wilt of Olive

Evaluating the effect of 32 products, including amino acids, micronutrients, microorganisms, substances of natural origin, copper complex-based products, and organic and inorganic salts against the disease under controlled conditions will be useful to select the best candidates for future studies.

The Impact of Trichoderma spp. on Agriculture and Their Identification

Fungi belonging to the genus Trichoderma were discovered in the late 18th century and they have been utilized ever since their biocontrol potential was uncovered. Trichoderma species have greatly

The Application of Trichoderma Strains or Metabolites Alters the Olive Leaf Metabolome and the Expression of Defense-Related Genes

The effects of repeated applications of selected Trichoderma strains or SMs on young olive trees on the stimulation of plant growth and on the development of olive leaf spot disease caused by Fusicladium oleagineum are analyzed.

Desirable Traits of a Good Biocontrol Agent against Verticillium Wilt

Issues such as large scale production, formulation, preservation conditions, shelf life, and application methods should be considered early in the process of selecting BCAs against Verticillium.

Feeding the Microbes: A Strategy to Control Verticillium Wilt

Soil application of common microbiological growth media can influence the plant—microbe interactions and, subsequently, offer protection against V. dahliae, and the addition of Nutrient Broth and Potato Dextrose in non-sterilized soil reduced Verticillium wilt symptoms in eggplants.



Colonization process of olive tissues by Verticillium dahliae and its in planta interaction with the biocontrol root endophyte Pseudomonas fluorescens PICF7

Early and localized root surface and root endophytic colonization by P. fluorescens PICF7 is needed to impair full progress of verticillium wilt epidemics in olive.

Strain-specific colonization pattern of Rhizoctonia antagonists in the root system of sugar beet.

The survival and colonization patterns of five different biocontrol agents against Rhizoctonia solani AG2-2IIIB in the rhizosphere of greenhouse-grown sugar beet plants were analysed in single and combined treatments to provide useful information on which combination of strains to test in larger biocOntrol experiments directed to applications.

In Vivo Study of Trichoderma-Pathogen-Plant Interactions, Using Constitutive and Inducible Green Fluorescent Protein Reporter Systems

In situ interactions between gfp-tagged biocontrol strains of T. atroviride and soilborne plant pathogens that were grown in cocultures and on cucumber seeds by confocal scanning laser microscopy and fluorescence stereomicroscopy and green fluorescent protein expression under the control of host-inducible promoters was studied.

Salicylic acid prevents Trichoderma harzianum from entering the vascular system of roots.

It is observed that, without the support of SA, plants were unable to prevent the arrival of the fungus in the vascular system and its spread into aerial parts, leading to later collapse.

Ecological studies of the bio-inoculant Trichoderma hamatum LU592 in the root system of Pinus radiata.

It was shown that total propagule counts do not always correlate with the amount of viable mycelium present in the root system, and it is proposed that the differentiation of mycelia from spores and root penetration is used as more accurate measures of fungal activity.

Biological control of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. phaseoli by Trichoderma harzianum and its use for common bean seed treatment

Two isolates significantly reduced the Foxy incidence and enhanced seed germination, though less effective than the fungicide mixture (carboxin + thiram) and a principal component analysis indicated the importance of volatile metabolites in reducingFoxy incidence on common bean seeds.

Antagonistic activity and hyphal interactions of Trichoderma spp. against Fusarium proliferatum and F. oxysporum in vitro
