CULTIVATION OF TRICHODERMA SPECIESON RICE WASH AND ITS APPLICATION IN PEST CONTROLLINGP.B. AREKAR
In the recent years, the environmental contamination caused by excessive use of chemical pesticides increased the interests in integrated pest management, where chemical pesticides are substituted by bio-pesticides to control plant pests and plant diseases. Trichoderma virideis an ecofriendly biological fungicide. In the present study different types of polished and unpolished rice were used to prepare rice wash for cultivation of Trichoderma virideand its maximum yield were recorded in rice wash of unpolished rice and the lowest yield in polished rice. The cultivated Trichoderma viridewere used as pesticide and its field trials were conducted on one Acre of land. Trichoderma viride enhanced the root and plant development, solubilisation of inorganic nutrients and induced resistance inactivation of pathogens enzymes might be due to secreting certain plant growth stimulating substances.
