Abstract:

The non-judicious use of agrochemicals has created a vicious impact on the environment and its inhabitants which is a major concern among society these days; although, thinking and attitude towards its use has changed and there is a growing interest to develop its alternative. On the other hand, the use of microorganisms that antagonize plant pathogens (biological control) is a risk-free approach and the species of Trichoderma are well recognized as agents for plant disease control in addition to its promontory effect on plant growth. Presently a large number of Trichoderma based products are available in the market globally which are dominated by T. harzianum and T viride. This review is focused on various mechanisms of bio-control employed by Trichoderma, current status of research and its applications in agriculture with the objective to create awareness about this fungus in society to popularize its beneficial service to the environment and its future development.
