Abstract

Soil supports the growth of a jute pathogen Colletotrichum gloeosporioides but only to a limited extent that of its antagonist Aspergillus versicolor. The growth of the sensitive pathogen is considerably checked by the antagonist in mixed soil culture although versicolin production could not be demonstrated within the limits of assay. Both the sensitive and the antagonistic organisms grow well in soil-compost medium and versicolin production by the latter is also enhanced. The antagonistic effect of Aspergillus versicolor on Colletotrichum gloeosporioides is expectedly more marked in soil-compost medium than in soil medium.
