Formulation development of Trichoderma virens and its application on cabbage seed coating/BAPHIQ

The cabbge seeds were coated by using mixture of CMC and methyl cellulose as the adhesives, diatomaceous soil as the filler and the spore of Trichodrma spp. as protectant the seed germination, plant growth and disease incidence were detected by Rhizoctonia colani and Pythium aphanidermatum. The results indicated that Trichoderma spp. could enhance the germination rate in aging seeds of cabbage.The results showed that cabbage seeds coated by Trichoderma spp. could reduce considerably the disease incidence of damping-off.
