Abstract Over 120 bacterial strains were evaluated in a greenhouse for control of bean rust caused by Uromyces appendiculatus . The strains, found previously to be antagonistic to some fungal pathogens, were isolated from dry edible bean ( Phaseolus vulgaris ) and other hosts. Only Pantoea agglomerans B1, from a bean blossom, and Stenotrophomonas maltophilia C3, a chitinolytic strain from a Kentucky bluegrass leaf, were effective in multiple experiments in reducing bean rust severity.
