Bacterial antagonists ofBotrytis cinerea comprising fluorescent pseudomonads (61%),Bacillus spp. (30%) andSerratia spp. (9%) were isolated from differentBrassica spp.Serratia andPseudomonas strains which showedin vitro antagonism againstB. cinerea andAlternaria brassicicola were tested forin vivo antagonism at 4°C against these fungi using a leaf disk bioassay and for their ability to persist on cabbage leaf surfaces.
