Abstract

The species belonging to the filamentous fungal genus Trichoderma are well known to be potential biopesticide candidates for agricultural application. Several Trichoderma strains have been reported to be effective in promoting plant growth and in controlling plant diseases, and the action of fungal hydrolytic enzymes is considered as the main mechanism involved in the biocontrol process including antagonism, mycoparasitism and competition. In the present study, information was collected about the abilities of the extracellular protease secretion of Hungarian Trichoderma isolates from winter wheat rhizosphere.
