Abstract

Evaluating tolerability of different Trichoderma species against various heavy metal salts was the prime intention of the current investigation. Trichoderma virens, T. asperellum, T. atroviride, T. longibrachiatum and T. harzianum isolated from paddy fields irrigated with industrial effluents were inoculated in potato dextrose broth amended with metal salts like potassium dichromate (K2Cr2O7) as hexavalent chromium source, Mercuric chloride (HgCl2) as source of mercury and cadmium chloride (CdCl2) as cadmium source at different concentrations i.e. 0.4, 0.6, 0.8 and 1mM with optimal pH conditions. All the five isolates tested against metal have proven their potentiality towards accepting metal salts in their growth media. Results obtained from the studies has shown variance among species and their metal tolerance too.
