AIMS Evaluation of a new isolate of Pseudomonas fluorescens for its biocontrol properties. METHODS AND RESULTS Strain Psd identified as Ps. fluorescens, produces secondary metabolites that are toxic to some plant-pathogenic fungi. Inhibition of fungal growth of Fusarium oxysporum and Verticillium dahliae in the presence of bacterial culture filtrate provided the first clue to its biocontrol properties. In order to determine the basis for antifungal properties, antibiotics were extracted and… CONTINUE READING
