Evaluation of biocontrol efficacy of <em>Trichoderma</em> spp. demonstrated effective potential of <em>Trichoderma</em> on reducing <em>Verticilium</em> disease on eggplant cultivars. Disease assessment was established by measuring disease incidence in root units (DI-RU) and in the above ground of eggplant cultivars (DI- AU). DI-RU% was recorded at 12.5%, 25.0%, 31.3% and 37.5% in T3, TC, T1 and T2 treatment respectively where DI-RU recorded in Tm2 controls; eggplants inoculated with <em>Verticillium</em> only was equal to 100.0%. Whereas, disease incidence outcomes in aerial part was DI- AU = 100.0 % in treatments TC and T2, 87.5% in T1 and 96.0% in T3 treatment where Tm2 controls were assessed with 100.0%.</p> Wafaa Mimoun Mokhtari, Mohamed Achouri, Abdellah Remah, Hassan Boubaker ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://journals.atlas-publishing.org/index.php/AJB/article/view/172 Sun, 25 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0000 Proceedings of the Fourth International American Moroccan Agricultural Sciences Conference - AMAS Conference IV, May 9-11, 2018, Meknes, Morocco http://journals.atlas-publishing.org/index.php/AJB/article/view/175 <p>The International American Moroccan Agricultural Sciences Conference (AMAS Conference; www.amas-conference.org) is an international conference organized by the High Council of Moroccan American Scholars and Academics (HC-MASA; www.hc-masa.org) in collaboration with various universities and research institutes in Morocco.
