About the book
The book Trichoderma aims to assist in the integrated management of plant diseases with applications in all cultivation systems (including vegetables, cereals, oilseeds and fruit trees). Parasitism, identification of species, ultrastructure and molecular aspects (uses of SSR and snips techniques) of the interaction of the biocontrol agent and the seeds, roots and the phyllosphere will also be discussed, taking into account all the modalities of use of this important and versatile microorganism. Aspects of its application involving products and their formulations for use by farmers, as well as management tactics involving other biocontrol agents such as bacteria, use of organic matter, vegetation cover and resistant or tolerant varieties for some pathosystem will also be addressed.
The book will discuss integrated management of plant diseases and plant protection, with an emphasis on phytopathogenic fungi, biocontrol, plant genetics and resistance.
