More than 500 isolates of bacteria were obtained from the aerial part and rhizosphere of sweet pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) plants harvested from different places in the Region of Murcia (Spain). The isolates were purified and assayed in vitro against Phytophthora capsici and Alternaria alternata. Sixty isolates (12 %) produced an inhibition zone against at least one of the pathogens, while ten had a strongly inhibitory effect on both pathogens assayed. Microscopic observation of interactions… CONTINUE READING
