Trichoderma harzianum

Biostimulant for resilient growth

Trichoderma harzianum T-22 is a species of beneficial fungus commonly used in agriculture and horticulture for its various beneficial properties. This fungus is known for its ability to promote plant growth and enhance plant health, improve nutrient uptake, and enhance overall plant vigor. Its versatility and effectiveness makes it a valuable tool for sustainable agriculture. Trichoderma harzianum T-22 improves root system development, nutrient uptake and plant growth.

Control plant diseases with Trichoderma harzianum

The beneficial fungus Trichoderma harzianum T-22 protects plants against a range of soil-borne root diseases through several different modes of action. Trichoderma harzianum controls the following plant diseases:

  • Damping-off (Pythium spp.)
  • Rhizoctonia root rot (Rhizoctonia spp.)
  • Fusarium wilt (Fusarium spp.)
  • Sclerotinia rot (Sclerotinia spp.)
  • Microdochium spp.

How does Trichoderma harzianum work?

Trianum-G improves the root system through the formation of more root hairs, so that water and nutrients can be taken up better. This leads to a stronger and more uniform crop and better yields. This effect is stronger when the plant is under stress and/or cultivated under less than optimum growing conditions. Trianum-G also reinforces the defence mechanism of the parts of the plant above ground, the so-called induced systemic resistance (ISR). Trianum-G has the capacity to make certain 'fixed' nutrients such as manganese and iron available for the plant to take up.

Advantages of Trichoderma harzianum

The usage of Trichoderma harzianum T-22 in sustainable agriculture and integrated pest management practices has various advantages:

  • It strengthens the plant and promotes growth
  • It improves root system development and nutrient uptake
  • Safe for people, plants and the environment
  • Easy to apply with existing equipment
  • Leaves no residues

Application of Trichoderma harzianum

Trichoderma harzianum T-22 is available in 2 different formulations:

  • Wettable granules (Trianum-P): can be sprayed or added to an irrigation system
  • Micro granules (Trianum-G): can be mixed with substrate or applied in furrow atsowing using a granulator

Trianum is most effective when used preventive: a good and early colonization of the root system will avoid attacks of pathogens. Applications with Trianum-P or Trianum-G should start as early as possible, at the moment of sowing or transplanting. For transplanted crops it is possible to start applications from propagation. When the pathogen pressure is potentially high, the crop is sensible to soil diseases. If the crop cycle is long it is advised to perform regular applications with Trianum-P to keep a high number of change to maintain a solid barrier around the roots.
