Severity of stem-rot disease of peanut caused byRhizoctonia solani was reduced by 54.9 and 68% in plants of two cultivars treated in the greenhouse with antagonistic strains ofPseudomonas fluorescens. These strains were selected based on theirin vitro toxicity to mycelial growth and sclerotial germination ofR. solani. In field experiments, bacterization of… CONTINUE READING
