The synergistic effect of kasugamycin and thiolutin as biopesticides with some synthetic pesticides (benlate, euparen, dithan and pentachlorophenol) toward wood-damaging fungiCladosporium sphaerospermum, Ceratocystis pilifera andAureobasidium pullulans was studied. Kasugamycin showed a synergistic effect with benlate and euparen with all three microorganisms, thiolutin stimulated mainly the fungicide effect of euparen. Kasugamycin and thiolutin prolonged also the antifungal activity of benlate and euparen. Dithan decreased the activity of kasugamycin and thiolutin.
