On 10 October 2019, Asst.Prof. Dr. Yuwadee Chupraphawan, director of the National Biological Control Research Center-Lower Northeast, led lecturers, staff and students to produce tricoderma from rice at the Faculty of Agriculture. The event was held under a flood recovery project co-organized by the Faculty of Agriculture, the Office of Agricultural Research and Development Region 4 and the Ubon Bio Ethanol Company Limited. The project aimed to help Ubon Ratchathani flood victims recover their vegetable and cassava farms. Approximately 8,400 packs of Tricoderma, a biocontrol agent for plant disease control, were produced and will be transferred to the farmers throughout Ubon Ratchathani Province. Many plants were waterlogged last September due to the flood and the tricoderma will help prevent and protect their vegetables from plant fungus.
Dr. Narintorn Boonbrahm, Dean of Faculty of Agriculture, reported that tricoderma is an essential plant growth supporter and a practical biocontrol agent for plant disease caused by fungus and bacteria. All 8,400 packs of tricoderma are ready to be presented to the farmers who were affected by the flood. For more details on how to receive the produced tricoderma, please contact the National Biological Control Research Center at the Faculty of Agriculture during their regular working days of Monday to Friday via telephone at 045-353535.
