"We worked together on a project to support a community garden at the Kidane Mehret Eritrean Orthodox Tewhado Church. We know that in Eritrea, high temperatures, drought and loss of land are challenges to agriculture. We were curious if the addition of Trichoderma fungi would benefit seed germination and root structure of three garden crops: radish, corn and peas. We added 2 species of Tricoderma fungi to the water used to germinate 10 seeds of each type and tap water without Tricoderma to 10 seeds of each type for a control. The fungi did have a positive effect. The trichoderma fungi appeared to be very effective in promoting primary root growth across all species of plants (corn, peas, and radishes). "
