The genus Trichoderma has its own significance in the agricultural industry due to its varied activities ranging from being a valuable antagonist against the soil-borne pathogens to acting as a provider of nutrition to the soil as well. Several scientists have worked on how this genus acts as a potential biocontrol agent against a range of pathogenic fungi. Harman et al. have even reported Trichoderma as opportunistic, avirulent plant symbionts. They have explained the features of Trichoderma as to how it colonizes the roots that eventually proves beneficial to the soil in terms of nutrition and plant growth increasing crop productivity simultaneously.
