Table 1 Effects of selected rhizobacteria isolates on germination of C. arabica L. seeds and on disease incidence caused by C. gloeosporioides and F. oxysporum

From: Bacillus species (BT42) isolated from Coffea arabica L. rhizosphere antagonizes Colletotrichum gloeosporioides and Fusarium oxysporum and also exhibits multiple plant growth promoting activity
