    This study investigated the effect of foliar application of extract and culture of Nostoc calcicola and Nostoc linckia on the Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici (FOL) that infects tomatoes (Solanum lycopersicum) plant in vitro and in vivo. Cyanobacterial isolates were isolated from saline soils at El-Hamoul and Seidy Salem locations Kafr Elsheikh, Egypt, and identified to be N. calcicola and N. linckia Bioactive compounds of extract were analyzed by Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Dry weight, carotene, chlorophyll content, and total phenolic compounds of isolates were measured. Plant height, dry weight, fruit number, and fruit weight of tomatoes were estimated. GC/MS analysis showed 49 and 35 bioactive compounds in extracts of N. calcicola and N. linckia, respectively. N. calcicola possesses the highest values of chlorophyll a, carotenoid, and total phenol contents in dry weight compared with N. linckia. After 100 days of tomato growth, the results showed the highest yield of tomato fruits with the application of N. calcicola and N. linckia compared with the untreated plants and the plants which were infected with Fusarium, suggesting that N. calcicola and N. linckia can serve as a new bioagent for biological control of the soil fungus Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici (FOL). © 2022.
