TrichoMax: Encapsulation of Biological Agents (Trichoderma harzianum)

PI 2013700219

 

The wide use of pesticide in agriculture practise can damage agriculture land by harming beneficial soil microorganism.
The use biological control agents (BCA) to control plant pathogen is more practical and environmental friendly.
The length of shelf life and effectiveness are major problems that BCA to compete with pesticide. Most of BCA are in the liquid form and easy to contaminated and difficult to handling.

 

TECHNOLOGY

  • Encapsulation of Trichoderma harzianum as biofungicide product to control soil borne pathogen
  • (VP) Encapsulation method can protects T. harzianum from biotic and abiotic stress factors by providing a beneficial microenvironment. This leads to extended shelf-life and maintains the metabolic activity for extended periods of time. T. harzianum are slowly release and can survive longer in soil and have extended persistence.

 

ADVANTAGES

  • Greater efficacy • Longer shelf life • Ease of handling • Increased safety, • lower production costs • Compatibility with agricultural practices
