Abstract:

In eco-friendly management of soil borne plant diseases the T. viride plays an important role. Traditionally T. viride is multiplied on solid and liquid fermentation. Solid fermented biomass of Trichoderma consisted mainly of chlamydospores and conidia with some amount of mycelia fragments. High costs of substrate and storage methods are major problems in accelerate the production. Therefore, experiments were carried out to screen out locally available agricultural wastes and grains for solid fermentation process. Colony forming units (CFU) were maximum on sorghum and learn was on wheat 67.18 per g and 31.38 x 10-6 per g. in soybean bran showed wishes CFU and least on amongst the carriers tested talcum and gypsum supported the survival of T. viride which showed highs CFU even after 180 days 2.0 x 107 per g respectively. Charcoal and lignite supported the T. viride up to 150 days after 150 days the CFU started to decline at room temperature.
