Different animal manures were evaluated and compared with wheat grain medium for mass production, storage and application of some nematode egg parasitic fungi. Mycelial growth indices of Acremonium sclerotignum, Fusarium solani, F. oxysporum, Microascus triganosporus, Paecilomyces lilacinus and Phoma leveillei on broiler or layer chicken manures were similar or higher than on wheat grains. Spore production of F. oxysporum, F. solani and P. lilacinus on both chicken manures was 22-590% higher than on wheat. The viability of the three fungi on all substrates did not practically change over six months during storage at room temperature. By using layer chicken manure as carrier substrate, the three last mentioned fungi were very effective in reducing root galling on glasshouse tomato plants caused by Meloidogyne javanica. F. oxysporum and F. solani were less effective against the nematode when added on broiler chicken manure or on wheat grains, while P. lilacinus failed to reduce galling significantly.
