Biological control of soil-borne pathogens by fluorescent pseudomonads
Phenazine production is critical for the biocontrol properties of certain agriculturally important root-colonizing pseudomonads
that protect food crops from attack by pathogenic fungi (25,26).

Samson 1986 demonstrated that fluorescent pseudomonads
can represent up to 50 percent of the total bacteria in casing samples, whereas Doores et al indicated that they represented 2 percent of the total casing bacteria only.

Compared with water-soaked slices, both treatments reduced the number of pseudomonad
bacteria and improved the keeping quality of the sliced mushrooms.
