Abstract:
Cherry tomato (Solanum lycopersicum var. cerasiformae (Dunnel) A. Gray) is a cultivated species of tomato belonging to family Solanaceae. The crop cherry tomato is infected by many diseases including fungi, bacteria and viruses. Among the fungus diseases, Early blight of cherry tomato caused by Alternaria solani (EII and Martin) (Jones and Grout) during all stages of plant growth. In the experiment of In vitro efficacy of biocontrol agents against Alternaria solani all treatments showed significant effect to inhibit growth of the pathogen. The maximum inhibition was obtained by Trichoderma harzianum (85.13%) and Trichoderma viride (80.67%) growth inhibition over all other bioagents. The next best bioagent was Pseudomonas fluorescens (72.87%).
