Pythium oligandrum, fungus filtrate, antagonism, plant pathogenic fungi


 In this study, the antagonism effect of P. oligandrum against some plant pathogenic fungi such as A. ocharcenus, B. cinerea, F. oxysporum, F. solani, R. solani and S. sclerotiorum was studied. By using dual culture and poisoned plates techniques. Direct confrontation between the colonies of P. oligandrum and all pathogenic fungi resulted in an inhibition their growth. The results of the activity fungus filtrate at different concentrations indicated to  the radial  growth inhibition of all pathogenic fungi at all concentrations of the antagonist filtrate, and increased the inhibition with concentration increase.
