crops. The research objectives were 1) to isolate and identify endophytic fungi colonizeÂ plants growing on agricultural and Mount Salak supporting forest lands in the VillagesÂ of Parakan Salak and Cimalati, Sukabumi; and 2) to screen for their biocontrol agentÂ activity againt R. solani. Diameter of R. solani was measured on day 2 after inoculation,Â and its percent inhibition of growth by endophytic fungi is calculated using the formulaÂ Skidmore & Dickinson (1976). The results indicated that 214 isolates of endophyticÂ fungi were isolated from 96 plant species that growing in both places. Endophytic fungiÂ isolated including in the group of Aspergillus, Cladosporium, Colletotrichum, Curvularia,Â Drechslera, Fusarium, Guignardia, Mucor, Nigrospora, Paecilomyces, Penicillium,Â Pestalotiopsis, Phoma, Phomopsis, Rhizoctonia, and endophytic fungi that have notÂ been identified. Of the 214 fungal isolates tested, 39 isolates (18.22 %) could inhibitÂ the growth of R. solani from 10.18 % to 58.99 % with a percent inhibition. The highestÂ growth inhibition of R. solani were shown respectively by an unidentified fungus isolated
from Hyptis capitata Jack (58.99%), Cladosporium sp. isolated from jeruk bali (CitrusÂ grandis (L.) Osbeck) (55.42%), Pestalotiopsis sp. isolated from pine apple (AnanasÂ comosus (L.) Merr.) (53.85 %), and Paecilomyces lilacinus (Thom) Samson isolatedÂ from banyan (Ficus benyamina L.) (51.81%)Â
