Six different species of Trichoderma, Clonostachys rosea, Amanita spp., Lactarius salmonicolor and Laccaria laccata inoculum (all locally selected and previously evaluated for their effectiveness) were added to the soil of selected plants as Biocontrol Agents (BCAs) of the soilborne target pathogens and to alleviate the drought stress of trees.
