In-vitro inhibition of growth of some seedling blight inducing pathogens by compost-inhabiting microbes

  title={In-vitro inhibition of growth of some seedling blight inducing pathogens by compost-inhabiting microbes},
  author={S. Muhammad and N. A. Amusa},
Compost-inhabiting bacteria were studied for their effect on seedling blight inducing pathogens. Aspergillus niger, Trichoderma harzianum, Bacillus cereus and Bacillus subtilis were the microbes found associated with cow dung, sawdust and rice husk composted soils. Sclerotium rolfsii, Fusarium oxysporum, Pythium aphanidermatum and Macrophomina phaseolina were isolated from blighted seedlings of Cowpea, while S. rolfsii, P. aphanidermatum, Helminthosporium maydis and Rhizoctonia solani were… CONTINUE READING
