Mass Production of Conidia of Penicillium frequentans, a Biocontrol Agent Against Brown Rot of Stone Fruits

Conidial production of Penicillium frequentans, a biocontrol agent of the fungal pathogen Monilinia laxa, was tested in liquid and solid-state fermentation. Conidial production of P. frequentans in solid-state fermentation was higher than in liquid-state fermentation. Solidstate fermentation was made in specially designed plastic bags (VALMIC ® ) containing peat: vermiculite (1:1 w/w).
