Abstract

Enhance Suppressive Effect of Compost on Soybean Rhizoctonia Root Rot by Soil Treatment with Trichoderma harzianum

This study deals with in vitro, under greenhouse, and field efficacy of Trichoderma harzianum (Th1 and Th2), and two types of compost, plant compost (PC) and animal compost (AC) to control the soybean root rot disease caused by Rhizoctonia solani. In vitro study indicated that, Trichoderma spp. isolate Nos. 1 and 2 were the most effective on the pathogen growth, also both composts at 50% concentration were effective on the growth of the pathogen.
