Demonstration of the biofumigation activity of Muscodor albus against Rhizoctonia solani in soil and potting mix

Abstract

This research demonstrates the role of antimicrobial volatiles produced by Muscodor albus in disease control in soil and potting mix. The volatiles controlled damping-off of broccoli seedlings when pots containing soil or soilless potting mix infested with Rhizoctonia solani were placed in the presence of active M. albus culture without physical contact in… (More)
