Lysobacter: Disease suppressive soils

    Press/Media: Expert Comment

    Description

    Lysobacter species have also been isolated from soils suppressive to Rhizoctonia solani [49]. Clay soils with natural suppressiveness against Rhizoctonia contained higher numbers of antagonistic isolates of L. gummosus, L. antibioticus and/or L. capsici. Although the mechanism behind this phenomenon is not yet understood, it appeared that growing grass/clover increased the number of these Lysobacter species as well as the Rhizoctonia suppressiveness
