What fungicide kills Trichoderma?
The Trichoderma isolates were able to grow in liquid phase with azoxystrobin, chlorothalonil, and trifloxystrobin. After 14 days of incubation, fungicide removals of up to 89% in chlorothalonil, 46% in cyproconazole, and 33% in trifloxystrobin were obtained.
Disolite and Omnicide M were more effective than Environ and Prophyl at the same dilutions in killing Trichoderma spores, with Disolite being the most effective. Bleach also showed efficacy in killing spores, but at a dilution rate of 1:9, 14 minutes exposure were needed to eradicate the higher concentration of spores.
In-vitro compatibility study of Trichoderma spp with Mancozeb 75%WP revealed that this fungicide is compatible with Trichoderma viride upto 50 ppm. However, above 50 ppm concentration it started inhibiting the growth of both the isolates of T. viride.
Plant Treatment: Drench the soil near stem region with 10g Trichoderma powder mixed in a litre of water. Precautions: ➢ Don't use chemical fungicide after application of Trichoderma for 4-5 days. ➢ Don't use trichoderma in dry soil.
Once they come into contact with roots, they colonize the root surface or cortex, depending on the strain. Thus, if added as a seed treatment, the best strains will colonize root surfaces even when roots a meter or more below the soil surface and they can persist at useful numbers up to 18 months after application.
Trichoderma harzianum a potential biocontrol agent was multiplied by liquid fermentation method and formulated in talc. The talc based formulation was tested for shelf life up to 180 days under ambient condition.
Foliar Application: Trichoderma 5 -10 gm/L [Powder formulation] 3 to 5 mL /L [ Liquid formulation] and spray on diseased plants on cooler hours.
How to Use Trichoderma? To treat the nursery plant, prepare a solution of 5 grams of Trichoderma in one litre of water and immerse the plant in the solution, then carry out the planting or transplanting process.
As the CO2 level increased from 2 to 10 per cent, growth was reduced on an acid medium and increased on the alkaline medium as compared to cultures incubated in air. In air the optimum pH for Trichoderma ranged between 3–7 and 4.7.
Trichoderma mould is usually green in colour, ranging from an olive to emerald green. It is present in all soils and is the most common contaminant found in mushroom growing. Have you ever found mould on your onions or your bread when the weather gets warm and humid? That's Trichoderma.
Can I mix Trichoderma and humic acid?
Biohealth® TH WSG is a water-soluble, organic fertilizer based on humic acid (potassium humate), seaweed and Trichoderma. The combination of humic acids, highly effective seaweed extract (Ascophyllum nodosum) and beneficial microorganisms (Trichoderma harzianum strains) supports strong and healthy plant growth.
