Streptomyces sp. strain g10 exhibited strong antagonism towards Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. cubense (Foc) races 1, 2 and 4 in plate assays by producing extracellular antifungal metabolites. Treating the planting hole and roots of 4-week-old tissue-culture-derived ‘Novaria’ banana plantlets with strain g10 suspension (108 cfu/ml), significantly (P<0.05) reduced wilt severity when the plantlets were inoculated with 104 spores/ml Foc race 4. The final disease severity index for leaf symptom (LSI) and… CONTINUE READING
