Our colleagues at INHORT are working on the preparation of fungal inoculum for the experiments they are conducting in their greenhouses. The aim is to initiate or enhance the growth of these organisms in a specific environment.
In the images, we can observe one of the results of the field experiment: the survival of microorganisms. They show an isolated fungal population from plots treated with Trichoderma harzianum (plates in the first row) and untreated control plots (plates in the second row). The green colonies, in turn, belong to Trichoderma harzianum.
The raw inoculum of Trichoderma harzianum was obtained at the National Institute of Horticultural Research. Once processed, the inoculum will be ready for storage for several months at room temperature or for application.
