In situ and in vitro experiments were carried out to determine the effect of various composts (leafy fruit compost (LFC), garden compost (GC), and crops compost (CC)) and their water extract on Pythium debaryanum, Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. lycopersici, Sclerotium bataticola. Compost water extract (CWE) of LFC, GC, and CC were found to contain Bacillus spp., Micrococcus spp., Staphylococcus spp. and Corynebacterium spp., and the fungi Aspergillus spp., Rhizopus spp., and Drechslera spp., and… Expand
Characters of compost teas from different sources and their suppressive effect on fungal phytopathogens
Compost teas (CT) are fermented watery extracts of composted materials that are used to control plant diseases and on crop fertilization. In this work, aerated (ACT) and non-aerated compost teasExpand
Antifungal activity and growth promotion of three types of compost extracts against Fusarium oxysporum and Fusarium solani associated with peach seedling decline in nurseries
TLDR
Three types of composts (T1, T2, and T3) composed of variable percents of bovine, ovine, fowl manures, green waste and olive pomace were used and appeared to improve the sanitary state of peach seedlings inoculated with F. solani and F. oxysporum. Expand
Suppressive effect of non-aerated compost teas on foliar fungal pathogens of tomato
TLDR
Among the tested compost teas, NCT prepared from sheep manure compost consistently provided the highest inhibition of mycelial growth and the highest disease suppression, in particular of gray mold (>95% disease reduction). Expand
Grape Marc Compost Tea Suppressiveness to Plant Pathogenic Fungi: Role of Siderophores
TLDR
The results obtained with the microfiltered ACT revealed that the microorganisms present in grape marc compost excreted siderophores into the medium which were responsible for inhibiting the growth of the 9 fungi tested, and this inhibition was not 100% after adding FeCl3 due to the fact that this tea, exhibited other biocontrol mechanisms.

Biocontrol activity and induction of systemic resistance in pepper by compost water extracts against Phytophthora capsici.
TLDR
The results suggest that a heat-stable chemical(s) in the CWE can suppress root and foliar infection by P. capsici in pepper plants. Expand
Effect of non-aerated compost teas on damping-off pathogens of tomato
TLDR
Results showed that NCT prepared from the five types of compost had the ability to greatly reduce mycelial growth of P. ultimum-inoculated tomato seeds, and when applied on tomato seedlings inoculated with damping-off pathogens, various NCT also increased seedling fresh and/or dry weights. Expand
Characteristics and antifungal effect of composts on Fusarium oxysporum F. SP. lycopersici incitant of Fusarium wilt of tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.)
A laboratory study was carried out to evaluate some physical and chemical properties of three composts namely; composted poultry manure (CPM), composted cow dung (CCD) and composted neem-leaf (CNL)Expand
Efficiency of garden waste compost teas on tomato growth and its suppressiveness against soilborne pathogens
TLDR
The analysis of the growth effect of the teas on tomato plants clearly indicated that both ACT and AVT, when applied weekly, produce a positive effect on shoot and root dry weight, chlorophyll content and stem diameter compared to untreated plants. Expand
In vitro evaluation of compost extracts efficiency as biocontrol agent of date palm Fusarium wilt
TLDR
In this experiment, in vitro effects of different concentrations of sterilized and unsterilized compost extract on the growth of F. oxysporum f. Expand
ECO-FRIENDLY MANAGEMENT OF ROOT-KNOT NEMATODE AND ROOT ROT DISEASE INFECTING PEPPER PLANTS BY APPLICATION COMPOST AND TEA COMPOST
TLDR
Application of compost and compost tea extract might be a safe and eco-friendly tool in the sustainable management of disease complex and plant growth parameters significantly increased by the application. Expand

Effects of water extracts of a composted manure-straw mixture on the plant pathogen Botrytis cinerea
TLDR
Composted manure-straw mixtures and water extracts assessed for antagonistic activity against Botrytis cinerea significantly reduced its severity and increased marketable yield and the use of compost extracts in biocontrol of plant diseases is discussed. Expand
Antimicrobial activity of bark-compost extracts
TLDR
Using the disk-diffusion technique, it is found that acetone extracts of the bark-compost possessed strong antifungal activity against Fusarium oxysporum f. Expand
Effect of compost on rhizosphere microflora of the tomato and on the incidence of plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria
TLDR
The results suggest that compost may stimulate the proliferation of antagonists in the rhizosphere and confirm previous reports indicating that the use of composts in container media has the potential to protect plants from soilborne root pathogens. Expand

Compost: A study of the development process and end-product potential for suppression of turfgrass disease
TLDR
The use of composts that successfully suppress turfgrass diseases will permit a reduction in the use of chemical controls, and slow the development of fungicide resistance. Expand
Effect of compost water extracts on grey mould (Botrytis cinerea)
TLDR
Water extracts of fermented mature composts prepared from animal sources and a plant source were tested in growth chamber experiments for their ability to control leafgrey mould on tomato and pepper plants and grey mould on grape berries. Expand
Sporangial responses do not reflect microbial suppression of Phytophthora drechsleri in composted eucalyptus bark mix
TLDR
The results suggest that most of the fungal and actinomycete interactants in the CEB did not suppress the pathogen, but did suppress disease and that P. drechsleri possesses some competitive saprophytic ability. Expand
Characteristics of Bacillus subtilis isolated from composts suppressing phytopathogenic microorganisms.
TLDR
Only well-matured composts were found to suppress the phytopathogens, and bacteria associated with the effect were isolated and identified as Bacillus subtilis. Expand
Suppression of Pythium aphanidermatum in composts prepared from sugarcane factory residues
TLDR
Quantitative reduction of micro-organisms occurred in pasteurized composts (55°C for 2 h), compared to the populations in unheated controls, however the greatest decrease was observed for fungal populations. Expand
