bacteria mainly by using the native microbiota of the product of interest ( Oliveira et al., 2015 ). However, biocontrol can also be applied as an alternative cleaning and/or disinfection practice ( Vandini et al., 2014 ; Gray et al., 2018 ) as well. As

The surplus of waste glycerol, by-product of the biodiesel production process, is available at the global market. Some species of the genera Streptomyces have the ability to assimilate glycerol and convert it into valuable metabolic products. In the present study, the ability of Streptomyces hygroscopicus to assimilate waste glycerol and convert it into metabolic compounds with antifungal activity against four phytopathogenic fungi obtained from apple fruit samples expressing rot symptoms, was investigated. Production of antifungal metabolites by S. hygroscopicus was carried out in 3 l stirred tank bioreactor through 7 days. Fermentation was carried out at 27 °C with aeration rate of 1.5 vvm and agitation rate of 100 r.p.m. The aim of this work was to analyse bioprocess parameters and to determine at which stage of bioprocess the production of antifungal metabolites occurs. Activity of the cultivation liquid on two isolates of Alternaria alternata and two isolates of Fusarium avenaceum were determined every 12 h using in vitro well diffusion method. It was found that the maximum production of antifungal metabolites occurred at 108 hour of cultivation. Formed inhibition zones have shown that the produced antifungal metabolites have high efficacy on tested phytopathogenic fungi (inhibition zone diameter higher than 35 mm for all test organisms).

fungal plant pathogens, a variety of mechanisms contributes to the biocontrol activity of microbes. Cell-wall-degrading enzymes such as β-1, 3-glucanases, cellulases, proteases, and chitinases are involved in antagonistic activity of some biological

Biocontrol by lactic acid bacteria (LAB) is currently the principal alternative to preservatives in food ( R amos et al., 2016 ), and is widely studied because of the role and long history of use of LAB in fermented foods, their ability to produce
