Abstract:

Soil borne plant pathogenic fungi are of major concern in agriculture. The plant diseases need to be controlled to maintain the level of yield both quantitatively and qualitatively. Biocontrol methods are safe, cost effective and eco-friendly. Understanding the mechanism by which the biocontrol of plant diseases occurs is critical to the eventual improvement and wider use biocontrol method. Many microbial antagonists such as Pseudomonas, Bacillus and Trichoderma have been reported to possess antagonistic activities against plant fungal pathogens. The present study was aimed to screen the antagonistic activity of Pseudomonas against Fusarium oxysporum, Fusarium solani, Pythium aphanidermatum and Sclerotina sclerotiorum. Pseudomonas exhibited the maximum inhibition of growth of Fusarium oxysporum which is responsible for the wilt disease in pea.
