The antimicrobial effects of essential oils and pure oil compounds on mycelial growth of soilborne pathogens causing vegetable diseases in Australia was investigated. Fourteen essential oils and four pure oil compounds were evaluated using contact in vitro bioassays to determine optimum concentrations which can inhibit growth or kill pathogen mycelium. Three essential oils (thyme, clove bud and origanum) and all four pure oil compounds showed broad-spectrum and dose-dependant inhibitory and/or… CONTINUE READING
