An indigenous antagonistic bacterium Bacillus sp. 7079 was isolated from a local soil sampled at Kyongju area in Korea . The strain has strong antagonistic ability which was originated from multifunctional mechanisms of chitinase and antibiotic and is a powerful antagonistic biocontrol agent against red-pepper rotting fungus Phytophthora capsici and Wilt fungus Fusarium oxysporum. The chitinase might degrade the cell wasll for Fusarium species. The selected Bacilus sp. 7079 was identified as a Bacillus amyloliquefaciens 7079. The maximal production of the chitinase from B, amyloliquefaciens 7079 were obtained in chitin-yeast extract medium containing 0.7%, $K_2$$HPO_4$, $0.2KH_2$$PO_4$, 0.1% ($NH_4$)$_2$$SO_4$, 0.05% sodium cirate, 0.01% $MgSO_4$$7H_2$O, 0.1% yeast extract and 0.1% colloidal chitin after cultivation of 3 days at pH 7.0 and $30^{\circ}C$. The best carbon and nitrogen sources for the production of the chitinase from B amyloliquefaciens 7079 were determined to be 0.1% colloi- dal chitin and 0.15% proteose peptone NO 3 respectively, The antagonistic activity of B amyloliquefaciens 7079 was confirmed using P. capsici by in vivo pot test with red-pepper plant.
