Abstract
The increase in flower cultivation in recent years has been reflecting the higher incidence of soil pathogens that can cause serious problems. This study aimed to evaluate the biological control of Fusarium wilt in gerbera with T richoderma asperellum . The evaluated treatments were: T1) Control, only sterile substrate; T2) Substrate + Fusarium oxysporum ; T3) Substrate + Fusarium oxysporum + Trichoderma asperellum ; and T4) Substrate + Trichoderma asperellum . For this, the pathogen was isolated from gerbera with disease symptoms and, subsequently, it was identified according to morphological characters. Furthermore, the degree of antagonism of T. asperellum ag...
