Abstract: Antifungal actinomycete strains were assayed for antagonistic activity against Verticillium dahliae, Alternaria solani, Fusarium solani and Geotrichum candidum, four worldwide phytopathogenic fungi. For better evaluation of the spectral activity of the isolated Actinomycetes, two yeasts, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Candida albicans were also included in the survey. From 110 soil inhabitant strains that have been isolated from soil samples of Kerman province, southeast of Iran, 10 strains showed antifungal activities as determined through screening and bioassays by agar disk and well-diffusion methods. Active strains that have broad spectrum of antifungal activity were grown in submerged cultures and active crude was prepared upon which some preliminary characterizations conducted.
