Author(s):

Abstract:
Chaetomium globosum is a potential bio control agent against various seed and soil borne pathogens. Plant pathogens are the main threat for profitable agricultural productivity. Currently, Chemical fungicides are highly effective and convenient to use but they are a potential threat for the environment. Therefore the use of biocontrol agents for the management of plant pathogens is considered as a safer and sustainable strategy for safe and profitable agricultural productivity. Many experiments and studies revealed by various researchers C. globosum used as plant growth promoter and resulted into high yield of crops in field conditions. C. globosum produces pectinolytic enzymes polygalacturonate trans-eliminase (PGTE), pectin trans-eliminase (PTE), viz., polygalacturonase (PG), pectin methyl esterase (PME), protopectinase (PP), xylanase and cellulolytic (C and C ) 1 xenzymes and various biologically active substances, such as chaetoglobosin A, Chaetomium B, C, D, Q, R, T, chaetomin, chaetocin, chaetochalasin A, chaetoviridins A and C. The present aim of this article we have discussed the various aspects of biocontrol potential of Chaetomium globosum.
