Abstract

Trichoderma longibrachiatum is a soil fungus which often found on dead wood, other fungi, building material and sometimes animals. It is found all over the world but mainly in warmer climates. In this study, we isolated the fungal isolates from soils of fields of wheat in Iraq during 2017. The isolates was identified based on morphological characteristics by microscopic observation, determination of cultural features on different media and molecular phylogenetic analyses of internal transcribed spacer (ITS) rDNA. As a results, the isolate 48 namely Trichoderma longibrachiatum fungus was recorded as AB1 strain in National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) for the first time in Iraq.
