Seed treatment with Trichodermaspp can be used to manage biotic and physiological stresses in germinating seeds and seedlings of field crops.  Use of Tricordema enhances plant growth and yield. Therefore can be used to complement chemical treatment. This innovation seeks to identify, evaluate and develop a seed treatment package using indigenous Tricordemaspp in Bambara groundnut and bean production for use in the small holder and commercial agricultural sectors.
