A species of Arthrobacter was recovered during culture of the causal organism of pitch canker of southern pines. Fusarium moniliforme var. subglutinans (FMS). Arthrobacter is a relatively common soil bacterium and is lytic to several fungal pathogens in the soil. Soil samples from two seed orchards with pitch canker and one from a healthy pine plantation all yielded Arthrobacter. These isolates were evaluated for their ability to inhibit the growth of FMS isolates from pitch canker tissue and… CONTINUE READING
