Abstract:

The rampant uses of chemical pesticides by developing countries not only pollute the soil, also problem to environment and human. The current scenario is pollution of soil contaminated with heavy metals(HMs). Contamination of soil bad impact on both yields and crop qualities leads to decrement of agriculture productivity. The pathogen inhabitant in soil also responsible for contamination of soil. Soil is dwelling place of plant pathogenic fungi which cause diseases to the crops. Among the fungal biocontrol agents Trichoderma spp. are being used most abundantly against plant pathogens. Several species of Trichoderma produce volatile and non-volatile antibiotics and enzymes. They are antagonistic to phytopathogenic fungi and nematodes. Trichoderma spp. is free-living and abundantly present in the soil and rhizosphere region, they mycoparasites several soilborne plant pathogens. Trichoderma spp. helps to concentrate and absorb heavy metals (HMs), it acts as hyper accumulator. It helpsin breaking down of various toxic substances for sustain soil health. Trichoderma spp. have great potential against soil borne pathogens, and it may be able to replace chemical pesticides in the near future.
