The Effect Of Biomodification With Trichoderma Harzianum On The Chemical Composition And In Vitro Gas Fermentation Characteristics Of Melon Seed Husk With Or Without Supplementation With Wheat Bran

ABSTRACT

This study was carried out to evaluate the effect of biomodification with the fungi Trichoderma harzianum on the chemical composition as well as the in vitro gas production characteristics of melon seed husk (MH) with or without supplementation with wheat bran (WB). Wheat bran supplemented melon seed husk (0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, 100%) [Read more…]

Evaluation Of Selected Agroallied Wastes As Carrier For Trichoderma Harzianum

Evaluation Of Selected Agroallied Wastes As Carrier For Trichoderma Harzianum

ABSTRACT

This study was carried out to estimate the effectiveness of agro-allied wastes as carriers of the biological control organism, T. harzianum, by evaluating colonization and sporulation rate of each. The selected substrates were corn husk, Alstonia and Iron wood. The substrates were supplemented with 5, 10, 15, and 20% of rice bran, and control treatment to show the improved rate of colonization. All substrate used proved to be effective. [Read more…]
