Abstract:
Trichoderma is a very effective biological mean for plant disease management especially the soil born. It is a free-living fungus which is common in soil and root ecosystems. It is highly interactive in root, soil and foliar environments. It reduces growth, survival or infections caused by pathogens by different mechanisms like competition, antibiosis, mycoparasitism, hyphal interactions, and enzyme secretion. For the management of soil borne diseases especially stem and pod rot of groundnut, Trichoderma harzianum is very effective. Junagadh Agricultural University (JAU) has started the commercial production and selling of bio-agent Trichoderma harzianum culture under the brand name of SAWAJ Trichoderma. The study revealed that Trichoderma can be used with mixing with FYM ranked first, Application of Trichoderma is beneficial where fungal disease every years appears in soil ranked second, Trichoderma can used with sand mixing ranked third, Soil moisture must at the time of application of Trichoderma mixing ranked fourth, Trichoderma is cheaper than other chemical fungicides ranked fifth, Fungal disease not appears when Trichoderma is used for continuous 2 to 3 years ranked sixth.
