Abstract

The study was focused on the identification of the major secondary metabolites produced by the Trichoderma spp and soil borne pathogens. Trichoderma harzianum (Th. Azad) and Trichoderma viride (01PP) are two microorganisms used as active agents in a variety of commercial bio pesticides and bio fertilizers and widely applied on field and greenhouse crops. The production, isolation, biological and chemical characterization of the major secondary metabolites produced by these strains is done during this study. Metabolites are organic compounds that are used in, or created by, the chemical reactions happening in every cell of living organisms. In this paper we are studying about the production of secondary metabolites from Trichoderma species against soil borne pathogens at 27oC at different time intervals. Higher the concentration of secondary metabolites, greater will be the efficiency against soil borne pathogens
