Trichoderma harzianum andT. viride were significantly effective in improving germination (6-14%), tiller population (21-78%), millable canes (5-30%), yield (6-38%) and CCS t/ha (30-34%) over the control in plant cane of CoS 94257. Metabolites of both the species @ 2.5% were found to be more efficient and significantly better than spore suspension (106 conidia/ml) and TMC containingTrichoderma @ 2 kg/ha in 20 kg sterilized farm yard manure (FYM). The metabolites improved tiller count (53-78… 
Increasing the efficacy of Trichoderma harzianum for nutrient uptake and control of red rot in sugarcane
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.
Eco-friendly management of red rot disease of sugarcane with Trichoderma strains
Application of Trichoderma biopesticide is eco-friendly, economical and efficient for improving soil health also and is useful for management of red rot and cultivation of moderately resistant varieties for several years.
Utilizing the combined antifungal potential of Trichoderma spp. and organic amendments against dry root rot of mungbean
The study concludes that T. harzianum + neem cake can be recommended as an effective approach for the management of dry root rot of mungbean.
Biological control of red rot disease of sugarcane through Trichoderma harzianum and Trichoderma viride
The biocontrol of red rot offered by T harzianum and T. viride up to 5-6 months may be due to direct parasitic action of Trichoderma and also may be induced systemic resistance in sugarcane by the enzymatic actions of the metabolites released by the bioagent.
Biological control of sugarcane smut (Sporisorium scitamineum) through botanicals and Trichoderma viride
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.
Trichoderma harzianum Controls Red Rot and Influences Multiplication of Epiricania melanoleuca , an Ectoparasitoid of Pyrilla in Sugarcane Crop
Application of T. harzianum enhanced the field availability of nitrogen to the crop and consequently Pyrilla population increased which ultimately influenced the speedy multiplication of Epiricania .
Integrated management strategies for red rot disease of sugarcane
This study revealed that use of T. viride is beneficial for controlling red rot, improving quality attributes, enhancing yield and shelf life of a moderately red rot susceptible variety.
Review on Plant-Trichoderma-Pathogen Interaction
Continuous and tremendous use of chemical pesticides creates high selection pressure on pathogens which force to mutation inside the pathogens and development of pesticide resistance races in Venturia inequalis and Phytophthora infestans.
Growth and yield of Shallot (Allium cepa L.) in respons of organic fertilizers and Trichoderma asperellum
Increased shallot yield with aplication of organic fertilizer. Cajeput waste as a source of organic fertilizer is very abundant in Ponorogo. Research aimed to study the aplication of organic


Plant growth enhancement and disease control byTrichoderma harzianum in vegetable seedlings grown under commercial conditions
Results revealed the Trichoderma-treated plants to be more resistant to damping-off disease and to be much more developed and vigorous and had higher chlorophyll contents.
Effect of Trichoderma harzianum on microelement concentrations and increased growth of cucumber plants
It is shown that the improvement of plant nutritional level may be directly related to a general beneficial growth effect of the root system following T. harzianum inoculation and this phenomenon was evident from 5 days post-inoculation throughout the rest of the growth period, resulting in biomass accumulation in both roots and shoots.
Potential of Trichoderma spp. as consistent plant growth stimulators
In a series of repeated trials, six Trichoderma spp. strains, applied as a dried powder from a liquid fermentation in molasses/yeast medium, proved to be consistent at promoting the growth of lettuce
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
