Trichoderma viride

The fungicidal activity makes Trichoderma viride useful as a biological control against plant pathogenic fungi. It has been shown to provide protection against such pathogens as RhizoctoniaPythium and even Armillaria.

Trichoderma viride is found naturally in soil and is effective as a seed dressing in the control of seed and soil-borne diseases including Rhizoctonia solaniMacrophomina phaseolina and Fusarium species.

When Trichoderma viride is applied at the same time as the seed, it colonizes the seed surface and kills not only the pathogens present on the cuticle, but also provides protection against soil-borne pathogens.
