The suppressive potentials of Bacillus and Paenibacillus strains isolated from the tomato phyllosphere were investigated to obtain new biocontrol candidates against Fusarium crown and root rot of tomato. The suppressive activities of 20 bacterial strains belonging to these genera were examined using seedlings and potted tomato plants, and two Paenibacillus(More)
We designed specific primers for Coniothyrium minitans, a sclerotia-parasitizing biocontrol agent (BCA), and quantified its biomass in the field by quantitative polymerase chain reaction. Because chemical properties of the soil can decrease the DNA extraction efficiency and DNA polymerase activity, standard curves were calibrated by adding known(More)
