     Agricultural Research, Education and Extension Organization (AREEO) singed 11 joint collaboration agreements and technical knowledge transfer among the affiliated institutes and private sectors while celebrating the National Research and Technology Week on 20 December, 2017.

     One of the signed agreements was between Agricultural Biotechnology Institute of Iran and Green Biotech Incorporation aiming to transfer the technical knowledge of developing plants probiotics (biological control/ biofertilizers) of the native Trichoderma strains.

     Farmlands and greenhouses are exposed to approximately 25 million liters of chemical pesticides and 2 million tons of chemical fertilizers annually, which can be replaced by plant probiotics of the native Trichoderma strains to minimize the utilization of chemicals. Due to the growing knowledge of biocontrols and biostimulators’ advantages, the global trade turnover of these agents is increasing worldwide. Various formulations of these factors have been presented in the global market, anticipating that the global consumption trend grows to $ 8.82 billion for biocontrol agents and $ 2.31 billion for biofertilizers.

     It is worth mentioning that Dr. Mojegan Kowsari, a member of scientific board of the Department of Microbial Biotechnology at Agricultural Biotechnology Research Institute of Iran (ABRII), was the project executive of the formulation and production of the of Plants Probiotics (Biological Control/ Biofertilizers) of the native Trichoderma strains. Dr. Kowsari is working on Plant pathology, beneficial and industrial fungus, identification of important/ significant plant pathogen factors, optimization of beneficial and applicable microbial products in agriculture including bioinhibitors and biostimulators of Trichoderma fungus.
