Disease suppressive soilless culture systems; characterisation of its microflora

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