Effects of a rhizospheric biocontrol fungus on plant growth and above-ground herbivore defence
Several species/strains of the fungus Trichoderma are known to promote plant health and are widely used as commercial biopesticides. Beneficial effects of Trichoderma are attributed to various mechanisms such as enhanced growth, mycoparasitism, increased stress tolerance and the induction of plant defences against pathogens.
