    Abstract

    The pectinolytic Erwinia species, Erwinia chrysanthemi (Ech) and Erwinia carotovora (Ec), are plant pathogenic bacteria responsible for soft rot disease among many important crops including flower bulbs such as hyacinth, freesia and Zantedeschia. Spread and development of the disease can only be controlled by application of an integrated strategy that includes testing the propagation material, hygienic measures and use of chemical, physical and biological control agents. Within this study, the possibilities to control pectinolytic erwinias with antagonistic microorganisms have been explored
