Abstract

Endophytic fungi are fungi that live inside healthy crops tissues and do not cause interference in crops. Some species of endophytic fungi are a source of anticancer and antidiabetic compounds. In addition, the endophyte fungus can also be used as control agents of insect pests as insecticides. Endophytic fungus can also produce metabolites that play a role in thermoprotective. But not many are examining its potential in enhancing crop growth and the ability to suppress the pathogens. This study aims to assess the ability of endophytic fungi in promoting crop growth and pathogenicity test endophytic fungi against pathogens Fusarium. Research conducted at the Screen House and Laboratory of Crop Protection, Faculty of Agriculture, University of Bengkulu. The research stage starting from exploration endophytic fungus from crop chilli and rice, testing the ability of endophytic fungi in spurring the growth of cucumbers, pathogenicity test endophytic fungi against crop cucumber and chilli, and testing Capabilities pressing endophytic fungus fusarium pathogens. The results showed that the fungus endophyte tested quite able to increase the growth of cucumber crops, but has not been able to demonstrate the ability of antagonism against fungal pathogens because based on test results of dual culture there is no zone of inhibition, so it is necessary to explore more intensively in order to be found fungal endophyte that has potency as a biological control agent.
