Fruit spoilage from a variety of fungi is a major cause of economic losses after harvest and during transportation ( Hodges et al., 2011 ). This may be due to environmental conditions in the field, which can be particularly conducive to fruit

mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) grow in close association with plant roots, and play an important symbiotic role in the uptake and transfer of water and nutrients by the root system; in exchange, the plant supplies the fungi with sugars. The hyphae of AMF penetrate

Trichoderma is one of the most studied genera and includes plant growth–promoting fungi and biological control agents that are used against phytopathogenic fungi. Commercial formulations of Trichoderma have been developed worldwide because of

, heat stress had a negative effect on mycorrhizal colonization. In contrast, the highest colonization rate was obtained in inoculated plants that were not subjected to any heat stress. This is most likely because the contents of the mycorrhizal fungi are
