Biocontrol of Phytophthora Root Rot of Angelica Trees by Enterobacter cloacae and Serratia ficaria Strains

  journal={Journal of General Plant Pathology},
Bacterial strains isolated from the rhizosphere of angelica trees were evaluated for their antagonistic activity against Phytophthora cactorum, a causal agent of Phytophthora root rot. Of these, three bacterial strains, designated as T-1-8, T-1-14 and T-1-23, strongly inhibited mycelial growth of P. cactorum ARE-862 in a dual-culture plate assay. Biocontrol activity of these strains was then examined by dipping root of young seedlings of angelica trees into a bacterial suspension. The incidence… CONTINUE READING
