Composts from agricultural waste and the Trichoderma asperellum strain T-34 suppress Rhizoctonia solani in cucumber seedlings
Abstract Using composts in agriculture to minimize organic wastes and to reduce the addition of fertilizers and fungicides in crop production is highly effective. Our results show that among those… Expand

ABSTRACT Fusarium wilts are economically important diseases for which there are no effective chemical control measures. However, biological control and fertility management are becoming efficient… Expand
Phosphate sorption by calcium carbonate in some soils of the Mediterranean part of Spain
Abstract We studied the properties of CaCO3 and phosphate sorption of 36 calcareous soil samples collected across the Mediterranean part of Spain. Owing to its low surface area and to its relatively… Expand
Carnation Fusarium wilt suppression in four composts
Fusarium wilt is now a major disease of carnation crops worldwide. Methyl bromide, which is used to remedy it, is environmentally unsafe. An alternative approach integrated into biological control is… Expand
Effectiveness of biological control of Phytophthora capsici in pepper by Trichoderma asperellum strain T34
Pepper ( Capsicum annuum L.), one of the most widely grown vegetables worldwide, is susceptible to root rot caused by Phytophthora capsici . Many biocides have recently been banned in Europe because… Expand

A field survey conducted in September 2009 at five plantations of six different cultivars of southern highbush blueberries (Vaccinium spp.) in Huelva, Spain, yielded 35 diseased plants. Diseased… Expand
Selection of biological control agents against tomato Fusarium wilt and evaluation in greenhouse conditions of two selected agents in three growing media
Two biological control practices are the use of suppressive growing media and the application of biological control agents (BCAs). The goals of this study were: (i) to screen 584 potential BCAs… Expand
Effect of ammonium/nitrate ratio in nutrient solution on control of Fusarium wilt of tomato by Trichoderma asperellum T34
The behaviour of Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. lycopersici (Fol) and the effectiveness of the microbial control agent Trichoderma asperellum strain T34 were examined in hydroponically grown tomato plants… Expand
