The aim of this research was to measure the ability of endophytic fungi isolated from rice to inhibit the growth of Pyricularia oryzae, the pathogen that causes rice blast. Phialemonium curvatum had the greatest inhibitory effect against P. oryzae (66.6%), followed by Phaeosphaeriopsis musae (63.3%), making these species good canditates for biocontrol agents against P. oryzae.
