Abstract

The effectiveness of an antagonistic isolate, Trichoderma harzianum Rifai for controlling collar rot of coffee seedlings was assessed. Under field conditions using natural inoculum of Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn. and under artificially infested soils, seed treatment with T. harzianMm brought down the incidence of collar-rot disease. A soil incorporation method of inoculum was superior to the seed treatment. The possibility of using T. harzianum as a. biocontrol agent against collar-rot of coffee is discussed.
