Category of Technology developed: Futuristic
Stage of Development: Field Test
Please describe in detail including the TRL Level:


Applications: Carrier base Biopesticide or Bio-fungicide. Cost effective. Easier to produce. It can able to increases yield by 15 to 30
Advantages: It is a free-living fungus which is common in soil and root ecosystems It reduces growth, survival or infections caused by pathogens by different mechanisms like competition, antibiosis mycoparasitism hyphal interactions and enzyme secretion It can also use as a Plant Growth Promoter as TrichoCure solubilise phosphates and micronutrients The application of TRICHOCURE onto the plants as it increases the number of deep roots thereby increasing the plant's ability to resist drought It plays an important role in the bioremediation of soil that is contaminated with pesticides and herbicides

I-Mitra(आई-मित्र) Welcomes You..
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
