Effect of fungal staling growth substances on colony interaction


Effect of staling growth substances on the colony interaction in between some dominant rhizosphere fungi andSclerotium rolfsii Sacc. a root pathogen ofLens esculantum Moench. was examinedin vitro. Experimental findings depict that staling growth substances diffused in the agar created the change in the pattern of colony interaction. Measurement of growth inhibition of colony interaction was assessed with the help of a proposed model.
