TT No. 587: Trichoderma virens, An Effective Biocontrol Agent Against Ganoderma Boninense

Trichoderma species are considered as soil fungi that colonise superficially on plant root surfaces, forming a symbiotic relationship. Recent studies have reported that Trichoderma species are also capable of colonising the internal tissues of plants and characterised as having an endophytic relationship (Brotman et al., 2013).
