Novel potential of Trichoderma spp. as biocontrol agent

Non-judicial use of noxious fungicides results into ill effects on human health and putative to environment.

Abstract

Non-judicial use of noxious fungicides results into ill effects on human health and putative to environment. It has provided opportunity to device alternative control measure plan. Trichoderma specie due to its mycolytic enzyme secretions has high potential to combat with the destructive plant pathogens. It fights with competitive pathogen for space and food by stopping its activities and keeling the pathogen thus play significant role in enhancing the growth of the crops of economic importance. Various biocontrol based fungicides have been formulated and distributed globally.

Present study elaborates the importance of Trichoderma spp., its significant role as biocontrol agent and world distribution of various commercially available Trichoderma spp. based bioproducts.
