Biocontrol potential of fungal antagonists from western Himalayan region against Sclerotial plant pathogens

The antagonistic potential of seventeen fungal isolates (15 Trichoderma harzianum and 2 Fusarium solani isolates) indigenous to the western Himalayan region of India, was evaluated in vitro and in glasshouse against two important stages (sclerotia and mycelium) in the infection cycle of three plant pathogens (Rhizoctonia solani, Sclerotina sclerotiorum and Sclerotium rolfsii).
