Webinar on Trichoderma in Integrated Pest Management
Please join the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Integrated Pest Management (IPM) for a webinar on using Trichoderma in IPM. Trichoderma is sometimes called the ‘fighting fungus.’ In addition to warding off harmful fungal species, Trichoderma can help protect crops from other pests and actually promotes healthy plant growth. The fungus is gaining popularity among farmers and private-sector entrepreneurs in many of the countries the Innovation Lab works in.
The event can be accessed on February 28 at https://ipmil.oired.vt.edu/webinar-trichoderma/
The presenters will introduce participants to how Trichoderma is used in IPM packages, discuss its antifungal properties, explain the extraction process, and discuss the potential economic opportunities for farmers and entrepreneurs.
