Inhibition of eukaryotic pathogens by B. velezensis 9D-6 in in vitro plate assays. Representative plates are shown, along with average degree of inhibition zone of clearance measurements: (−) = no inhibition, (+) = 0.1–1.9 mm, (++) = 2.0–4.9 mm, (+++) = 5.0–9.9 mm, (++++) 10.0 mm+. C. carbonum causes Northern leaf spot and ear rot of sorghum, corn, apple, and peach [59]; F. oxysporum causes wilt and root rot of several crops [60]; F. solani causes mycotic keratitis of mammals (including humans) and root rot of plants [61]; G. pulicaris causes potato dry rot [62]; G. zeae causes wheat head blight and maize ear rot [63]; M. fructicola causes brown rot of nectarine and other stone fruit [64]; P. terrestris causes pink rot of onion [65]; R. solani causes several diseases of several crops [66]; A. solani causes early blight of tomato and potato [67]; P. mamillatum causes damping off and root rot of sevral crops [68, 69]
