Efficiency of Lactic Acid Bacteria in Biological Control against Fusarium Sp. in Corn Field in Gorgan Area

Article excerpt

Background: Soil-borne fungi such as Fusarium are plant pathogens like cereals and other crops. Since disabling this, funges and their produced mycotoxins by physical and chem- ical methods are costly and destroy nutrients, so biological detoxifications used to neutralize them and since lactic acid bacteria capable of produce antifungal metabolites, they are used as biocontrol agents.

Methods: A sample of wheat isolated from 10 store rural areas in Gorgan during two season the winter and spring and identification of fusarium fungi was done based on morpho- logical features and keys for the identification in culture me- dia PDA and CLA. Then their growing the inhibitory effects was studied by 7 strains of lactic acid bacteria with two-layer cultured and diffusion well in vitro.

Results: A total of 60 collected wheat samples,29 strains of Fusarium fungi isolated (48%) and of this number, F.verticillioides was the most common. The Results of survey inhibition effect of lactic acid bacteria as well method shown that the bacterium Lactobalillus rhamnosus had highest inhibito- ry effect on fusarium species. …
