Trichoderma: Taxonomy, Biodiversity and Applications


Michael S. Mouton (Editor)

Series: Microbiology Research Advances
BISAC: SCI045000

This book contains five chapters that detail the uses of trichoderma. Chapter One focuses on a comprehensive revisit of applications of Trichoderma in agriculture and other fields with a futuristic perspective. Chapter Two aims to present the main bioproducts derived from Trichoderma and the primary benefits of these microorganisms in agriculture. Chapter Three explains a study where nine isolates of Trichoderma spp. were tested. Trichoderma spp. are known for their high mycoparasitic potential as biocontrol agents against M. maydis, the cause of late wilt disease in maize. Chapter Four discusses the potentiality of Trichoderma spp. as a biocontrol agent and its mechanism in plant disease management. Lastly, Chapter Five details how Trichoderma acts as a bioinsecticide.
