Summary: To assess the ability of fungi antagonistic to to inhibit the formation of sclerotia and to grow through plant tissue from cut surfaces, a plant-tissue-based system has been developed using celery, lettuce and tomato segments. consistently showed no ability to grow through plant tissue or prevent sclerotium formation whereas and three isolates of showed significant ability to grow through plant tissue and significantly decreased the production of sclerotia. Treatment of the plant tissue with or 24 h before, or at the same time as, application of gave significantly greater inhibition of sclerotium formation than did treatment 24 h after application of . Of the fungi tested, had the greatest ability to grow through the tissue and WT6 the greatest ability to inhibit sclerotium formation.
