Botrytis cinerea is responsible for gray mold disease in more than 200 host plant species. The infection of host plants is mediated by numerous extracellular enzymes, proteins and metabolites. Each of these compounds may play a role in different stages of the infection process. Cell wall-degrading enzymes may facilitate the penetration into the host(More)
Bacillus amyloliquefaciens IUMC7 isolated from mushroom compost inhibited growth of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici (FOL) on culture plates, and a culture supernatant of IUMC7 inhibited in vitro germ tube elongation of FOL. When compared with control soils, mushroom compost inoculated with IUMC7 significantly reduced disease severity caused by FOL in(More)
Bacillus amyloliquefaciens IUMC7 and its culture supernatant, which we previously found to suppress Fusarium wilt, were found here to have antimicrobial activity against Ralstonia solanacearum. In in vivo experiments, mushroom compost inoculated with IUMC7 significantly reduced disease severity in tomato plants over that in control soils. The R.(More)
