Trichoderma Viride / Harzianum
Trichoderma spp. is fungi that are present in substantial numbers in nearly all agricultural soils and in other environments such as decaying wood. Among their other activities, they grow tropically toward hyphae of other fungi, coil about them in a lectin-mediated reaction, and degrade cell walls of the target fungi. This process (mycoparastitism) limits growth and activity of plant pathogenic fungi. Mycoparasites produce cell wall-degrading enzymes, which allow them to bore holes into other fungi and extract nutrients for their own growth.

Method of application
Suspend Trichoderma viride / harzianum in sufficient water (500g/100L) to achieve uniform application. Apply at the rate of 100-200 g per cubic metre (loose) of greenhouse potting mix, soil or planting beds.
Trichoderma viride / harzianum can be applied through low pressure watering nozzles such as fan nozzles or other watering systems (drip system) after filtering with filters. Agitate to maintain suspension. For best effect, treat potting mix several days before use for seeding or transplants.For bulbs & Ornamental: Dip bulbs in Trichoderma viride / harzianum suspension (100 g/L) prior to planting
Frequency of application
Two to three applications in vegetables ornamentals and 4-5 applications in lawns and landscape crops are recommended. Applications during early stages of plant growth protect the plant during critical stages of development.
Soil application: 5 kg /ha along with any organic fertilizer (without pathogenic contaminants).
Seed treatment: @ 4-5 gm per kg of seeds as per standard wet treatment.
Seedling treatment: @ 100 g/l prior to planting.
