Abstract

Fungal antagonists were tested in vitro against the growth of the pathogen Altemaria solani (Ell. and Mart.), and in tomato plants against the leaf blight disease. Although Trichoderma harzianum followed by T. viride were significantly effective in inhibiting the mycelial growth or A. solani. there was no significant difference between the effcctiveness of Trichoderma species in pot culture studies.
