Screening of tolerance and compatibility of Trichoderma viride against common fertilizers and fungicides
Author(s): Narender Kumar and SK Singh
In vitro toxicity and compatibility of commonly used fungicides like hexaconazole, propiconazole, crossman and carbendazim were not compatible with the T. viride at recommended dose or even at lower dosages. Whereas, mancozeb was found moderately compatible with T. viride at recommended dose (2000 ppm). Common fertilizers i.e., urea, DAP, ZnSO4, KCl and NH4Cl are highly compatible with T. viride. Maximum population (5.33 cfu g-1 soil) of T. viride was recorded in untreated control followed by mancozeb (5.0 cfu g-1 soil), crossman (4.66 cfu g-1 soil), hexaconazole (4.33 cfu g-1 soil) and carbendazim (3.33 cfu g-1 soil) in fungicides treated pots at recommended doses after 30 days of inoculation. All these fungicides were found highly compatible with T. viride. Whereas, carbendazim was moderately compatible with T. viride at 30 and 60 days after inoculation. All above tested pesticides were found highly compatible with the T. viride at recommended dose after 90 days of inoculation. In present study is to determine in vitro and in vivo sensitivity of T. viride to chemical fungicides which are usually applied in cultivation of crops to reduce the severity of a number of plant pathogens.
