A restraining effect of the antagonists Clonostachys rosea and C. solani when applied two days after inoculating carrot discs with A. radicina or A. alternata

Antagonistic fungi Clonostachys rosea and C. solani restrained production of toxins by Alternaria radicina and A. alternata in carrot root discs. Of these, C. rosea was more effective than C. solani. The results indicate the need for determination not only efficacy of a prospect biocontrol organism against growth of a target fungus, but also their ability to inhibit toxin production. However, growth character and toxigenic properties of antagonists must be taken into consideration as well, especially in case if a prospect biocontrol agent is to be applied in carrot for human/animal consumption.
