The ultimate how-to guide for isolating, culturing, and applying key Trichoderma species.St. Paul, Minn. (February 2016)—Trichoderma, a genus of beneficial microorganism that promotes nutrient and mineral uptake as well as the remediation of plant diseases, is an increasingly popular agent used in organic food production systems. Trichoderma: Identification and Agricultural Applications, a new title from APS PRESS, is the ultimate 'how to' book for harnessing the benefits of Trichoderma. This one-of-a-kind book provides details on how to isolate Trichoderma, select and maintaining efficacious cultures, formulate them for application, and apply them in the field or greenhouse. The spiral-bound laboratory manual is particularly useful to plant pathologists, biocontrol researchers, diagnosticians, ecologists, mycologists, and even medical/veterinary diagnosticians trying to identify Trichoderma and use their attributes in agricultural applications and studies.No single source provides so much highly detailed information for identifying Trichoderma and selecting and applying useful strains in agriculture. Authors Gary J. Samuels and Prakash K. Hebbar, both recognized experts in this growing field, draw on and translate the experimental literature to clearly describe the process of identifying Trichoderma cultures to species using molecular and classical techniques. Special features of this book include:
A special section of the book titled, “Interactions Among Trichoderma Species, Plants, and Their Pathogens: A Primer,” offers layman's point of view for agriculturalists who want to understand how this beneficial microorganism interacts with the plant and its pathogens. Trichoderma: Identification and Agricultural Applications is an excellent catalyst for the promotion of current applications and the development of new advances in crop management techniques in a range of disciplines, including plant pathology, mycology, ecology, and diagnostics.
