Disease suppressive soilless culture systems; characterisation of its microflora

, : Disease suppressive soilless culture systems; characterisation of its microflora. Acta Horticulturae (554): 323-331

This paper shows the importance of the microflora to suppress Pythium aphanidermatum, a fungal root pathogen in cucumber. Introduced single antagonists as well as the indigenous microflora suppressed pythium root and crown rot. Pseudomonas fluorescens, Streptomyces griseoviridis, Pythium oligandrum and 2 isolates of Trichoderma harzianum reduced the disease occurrence by >=60% in most of the experiments. The indigenous microflora showed a very constant disease suppression of 50 to 100%.

Recent research has shown that the microflora present in soilless systems is important for suppression of root pathogens. However, little is known of the microbial characteristics that are involved in this suppression. In the current project, a co...
