AIMS To explore specific mechanisms of endophytic Pseudomonas fluorescens antagonizing Athelia rolfsii, causing southern blight of Atractylodes lancea and to evaluate the potential of this Ps. fluorescens strain to control southern blight. METHODS AND RESULTS Endophytic Ps. fluorescens strain ALEB 7B isolated from A. lancea can significantly inhibit the growth of A. rolfsii strain SY4. Pre-inoculating A. lancea seedlings with Ps. fluorescens ALEB 7B reduces the southern blight morbidity rate… CONTINUE READING
