  1. aEffect of volatile compound(s) and cell-free culture filtrate (CFCF) from isolate BA5 on mycelial growth inhibition of Foc. bMycelial growth was measured after 72 h of culture in sealed Petri dish. c & d CFCF obtained from 24- and 48-h-old culture broth of isolate BA5, respectively. * and ** significant at P ≤ 0.05 and P ≤ 0.001 level, respectively. eHCN hydrocyanic acid. fCLP cyclic lipopeptide. The test medium was supplemented with insoluble gtri-calcium phosphate and hzinc oxide, respectively. “+” indicates positive activity and “−” indicates no activity
