In 1999–2001 the investigation of Alternaria species on vegetable crops: cabbage, cucumber, tomato and carrot was carried out and fungi species were isolated from vegetables and substrata used for plant cultivation. Isolated micromycetes: Alternaria alternata, Alternaria tenuissima, Alternaria brassicae, Alternaria brassicicola, Alternaria cucurbitae, Alternaria dauci, Alternaria radicina and Alternaria solani differed in pathogenic peculiarities, frequency of occurrence and their various reaction to fungicides (a.s. azoxystrobin, dichlofluanid, Cooper hydroxide, mancozeb, propamocarb hydrochloride), plant activator Bion (benzothadiazole) and antagonistic microorganisms (Trichoderma harzianum, Streptomyces griseoviridis).Keywords:
