Technology dissemination workshop

Innovation for agro-silvopastoral systems: nature-based solutions to improve plant health.

Registration form


The beneficial effects of the filamentous fungus Trichoderma in the biological control of plant pathogens is well known since decades. A wide array of commercial formulations based on effective strains of Trichoderma spp. is now available to farmers and the applications of this micro-organism have been boosted worldwide by both legislative and economic reasons. A large number of studies has proven that Trichoderma spp. display a range of mechanisms encompass the mycoparasitic ability: many effective strains have the ability to improve plant growth and the resistance of plants to multiple stress, including abiotic ones. The Workshop aims at presenting the state-of-the-art on the selection, application, formulation and mechanisms of action of Trichoderma spp. as a plant protectant, with emphasis on the improvement of plant resistance to biotic and abiotic stress in semi-arid silvopastoral systems.

Target audience

Farmers and their associations, land and forest owners and their associations, researchers, industry, extension services.
