sp. A75 and A501 inhibited the mycelial growth of pathogenic Rhizoctonia solani and sp.,
which cause the ginseng disease known as damping-off. Three methods were evaluated for the control of these pathogens, using
a mixture of the culture broths from sp. A75 and A501. The methods tested were seed dipping with 50-fold diluted
broth, drenching of soil with 100-fold diluted broth after sowing, and combined seed dipping and drenching. These methods
reduced the incidence of ginseng damping-off caused by R. solani by 81.3%, 84.8%, and 32.2% and that caused by sp.
by 51.0%, 52.1%, and 75.3%, respectively. Based on these results, the combination of seed dipping and soil drenching after
sowing using a mixture of the culture broths from sp. A75 and A501 effectively reduced the incidence of damping-
off in ginseng.
