Effect of Trichoderma species on germination and root disease control in neem seedlings
A pathogenic isolate (Fusarium solani) was collected from diseased seedlings of Azadirachta indica from Central Nursery, FRI, Dehradun. For testing pathogenicity, tests according to the Koch’s postulates were conducted. In the 4-monts net-house experiment, a total of 12 treatments were made in which AM fungus (Glomus fasciculatum), antagonistic fungi (Trichoderma koningii and T. harzianum) and pathogen Fusarium solani were treated singly as well as in combinations with each other. Results of the experiment showed the positive impact of Trichoderma spp. on germination and disease reduction in neem seedlings either singly or with AM.
