Effect of Rhizobium sp., on Growth of Pathogenic Fungi under in vitro Conditions

Tabassam Sharif, Samina Khalil and Shahbaz Ahmad    

Abstract: In a laboratory study chickpea root nodulating bacterium Rhizobium sp., strain Thal-8 significantly inhibited the growth of pathogenic fungi (Alternaria alternata, Fusarium sp. Ascochyta rabiei, Drechslera sp. and Curvularia sp.) in potato dextrose agar media. The inhibition rate displayed differences in accordance with different fungi cultures. However, the inhibitory effect of Rhizobium sp., strain Thal-8 occurred most on pure cultures growth of Alternaria alternata and Drechslera sp. (54 and 45%, respectively) and least on Curvularia sp. (3%).
