Mycelial growth in grape juice was determined visually. Spore germination and growth of mycelia in control groups that do not contain M. pulcherrima UMY15 were accepted as %100 growth. %biocontrol activity was estimated by comparing the mycelial growth of mold spores coinoculated with M. pulcherrima UMY15 strains to the growth of controls.
