A COMPREHENSIVE STUDY OF ANTAGONISM WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO PSEUDOMONAS SPECIES AS BIOCONTROL OF FUNGAL DISEASES OF BANANA PLANTS. SUJATA CHAWARE, M.N. KOTHARI AND A.S. JOSHI
Pseudomonas species was well known for biological control activity against certain rhizospheric phytopathogenic fungi such as Fusarium oxysporum, Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus, Penicillium chrysogenum and Rhizopus species were screened and the bacterial isolate was confirmed for production of siderophore by thin layer chromatography. Present study revealed the functional diversity among isolates of Pseudomonas species associated with rhizospheric soil of banana is useful to understand their ecological role and for their utilization in sustainable agriculture.
