Biocontrol Activity of the Local Strain of Metschnikowia pulcherrima on Different Postharvest Pathogens
Inhibition of spore germination and fungal growth on the artificial wounds on apple by M. pulcherrima UMY15 strain.
Inoculations and zones (mm) of fungal growtha
Fungal spores only
Fungal spores + M. pulcherrima
Zones of fungal growth were measured as the distance from the center of artificial wounds to the ends of fungal growths (rots) on apples at the end of 48th hours of incubations. NG: no growth on apple wounds, NA: not applicable. Standard deviations were less than 10% in zones of inhibition.
