Fungi isolated from infected tissues of pea after applying biological control product EM 1.

Progress in Plant Protection 02/2009; 49(1):242-245.


A field experiment was performed during 2003–2005 in the Production-Experimental Station
at Tomaszkowo near Olsztyn, Province of Warmia and Mazury. The influence of EM (Effective Microorganisms) was studied on the number of fungal cultures isolated from infected tissues of pea. Mycological analysis showed that the plant surfaces were colonized by phytopathogenic fungi such as: Fusarium oxysporum, Rhizoctonia solani, Phoma medicarginis var. pinodella, Mycosphaerella pinodes and Botrytis cinerea. Plant pathogenic fungi occurred in the fewest numbers in the objects where soil was treated with EM in addition of chemical control, amounting to 64.29% isolates per treatment.
