Armillaria root rot, which can be caused by several members of the basidiomycete genus Armillaria, occurs all over the world on a wide variety of trees. In peach orchards of the Italian Po valley, where the disease is caused primarily by Armillaria mellea., there is an extensive tree mortality during replanting of orchards resulting in considerable economic losses to producers. If dead or dying roots could be colonized by an effective competitor of A. mellea before their removal, the extent of root colonization by A. mellea could be reduced. Such competitors may be found among species of Trichoderma, arbuscolar mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) and actinobacteria. The aims of the study are to 1) evaluate the effect of application of organic matter on soil fertility, fruit tree nutritional status, and growth; 2) evaluate the effectiveness of plant extracts (i.e. Brassicaceae), arbuscolar mycorrhizal fungi and antagonistic microorganisms to overcome soil sickness related to peach replanting.
