Abstract Share this page

The composition, concentration, shelf life and inconsistent performance are the major concern in formulation of bioagents in general and Trichoderma spp. in particular. To overcome some of these problems, Suspension Concentrate (SC) formulation of a potential isolates of Trichoderma viz., T. harzianum Th4dSC and consortium of T. harzianum Th4d SC and another species T .asperellum Tv5 SC were developed using conidial biomass of these bioagents produced by a production process supporting a higher quantities of biomass and viable propagules with better shelf life and persistence on sprayed surfaces. In this study, twenty five selected strains of Trichoderma were screened in vivo against foliar diseases (Alternaria Leaf Blight (ALB) of sunflower and Botryotinia Gray Mold (BGM) of castor). Among these strains, T. harzianum Th4d and T. asperellum Tv5 were able to produce mycolytic, defense enzymes and able to control two diseases effectively.
