Product Description:

Trichoderma viride is a naturally occurring fungus that has been widely recognized for its biocontrol and plant growth-promoting properties. As a beneficial microorganism, it plays a crucial role in promoting plant health and enhancing agricultural productivity in a sustainable manner. Trichoderma viride is known for its ability to colonize plant roots, suppress soil-borne pathogens, and stimulate plant growth through various mechanisms.

Key Features:

Biocontrol Agent: Trichoderma viride acts as a natural biocontrol agent against a wide range of plant pathogens, including fungi, bacteria, and nematodes, thereby reducing the reliance on chemical pesticides.

Plant Growth Promoter: It enhances plant growth and development by facilitating nutrient uptake, improving soil structure, and stimulating root growth, leading to healthier and more vigorous plants.

Induced Systemic Resistance (ISR): Trichoderma viride induces systemic resistance in plants, making them more resilient to environmental stresses such as drought, salinity, and disease attacks.

Biodegradable and Environmentally Friendly: Being a natural organism, Trichoderma viride is safe for the environment, non-toxic to humans and animals, and does not leave harmful residues in soil or water.

Compatible with Organic Farming: Suitable for use in organic farming systems, Trichoderma viride offers an eco-friendly alternative to conventional agricultural practices.

How to Use in Farming:

Seed Treatment: Mix Trichoderma viride spores with a carrier substance such as talc or rice bran at the recommended dosage. Coat seeds evenly with the mixture before sowing to protect seedlings from soil-borne pathogens and promote healthy root development.

Soil Application: Apply Trichoderma viride as a soil drench or incorporate it into the soil during land preparation. Ensure thorough mixing to distribute the beneficial microorganisms evenly throughout the root zone.

Foliar Spray: Prepare a suspension of Trichoderma viride spores in water with a suitable adjuvant. Spray the solution on plant foliage during the vegetative stage to enhance disease resistance and promote robust growth.

Compatibility: Trichoderma viride is compatible with most commonly used fertilizers and pesticides. However, avoid mixing it with chemical fungicides or bactericides, as they may inhibit its beneficial effects.

Application Timing: Apply Trichoderma viride early in the crop growth stage for maximum effectiveness. Repeat applications may be necessary depending on the severity of disease pressure and environmental conditions.

Storage and Handling: Store Trichoderma viride products in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Follow recommended handling procedures to maintain spore viability and product efficacy.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM): Incorporate Trichoderma viride into an integrated pest management program to promote sustainable pest control practices and reduce chemical inputs.
