Treść
The purpose of this study was to determine whether the use of Trichoderma has a beneficial protective effect against pathogens existing on the above ground parts of tomato plants. Samples obtained from isolated and multiplied funga l cultures of Trichoderma viride were used for treatment of the above ground parts of tom atoes. In one embodiment, the plants were treated with pathogenic strain of Fusarium sp that commonly damages crops. Influence of the fungus Trichoderma was determined by quantitative presence of necrosi s on leaves in various groups of cultivated tomatoes compared to control s amples. The development of seedlings was checked by the length and weight of fresh and dry p lants. The experiments were conducted in pot cultures and controlled conditions. The results showed the protective role of Trichoderma viride in relation to the Fusarium and statistical significant positive effect on the growth and development of tomato seedlings. The group of seedl ings treated only with parasitic fungi is characterized to have greater presence of necrosis compared to the group treated with saprophytic fungi and control. Trichoderma viride effectively fights plant pathogenic fungus of the genus Fusarium . The use of this biological agent in plant protect ion may restrict the use of chemicals and thus contribute to improve consumers’ health.
