Such positive traits increase agricultural productivity with minimum damage to the environment (Oquist et al., 2007; Forge and Kempler, 2009; Glover et al., 2010). However, use of compost amendments alone is usually not sufficient to maintain the expected productivity level as that of synthetic fertilizers in the short-term (Pimentel et al., 2005; Herencia et al., 2008; Diacono and Montemurro, 2010). Integrated plant nutrient management system

– compost from household composter (K);
– rotten beech wood (collected from the local forest) (P).
The compost and the rotten wood were pretreated (after grinding they were sieved through 2 mm mesh sieves).
The solutions of raw materials (sewages, compost, rotten wood) were prepared in physiological salt (ranged: sewages and compost 10-1–10-8; rotten wood 10-1–10-5). Diluted samples were sieved by the spread plate method on solid media at two series:
– series 1

morphological and molecular analysis, the isolates were identified as Trichoderma. The most frequently identified strains belonged to Trichoderma harzianum species. Among all strains, the most effective in degradation of cellulose and xylose was T. harzianum and T. virens, especially those isolated from forest wood, forest soil or garden and mushroom compost. The results of this work confirmed that numerous strains from the Trichoderma species have high cellulose and xylan degradation potential and could be

Agaricus bisporus plays an important role in ecological processes and is one of the most widely cultivated mushrooms worldwide. Mushroom growth-promoting bacteria have been isolated from casing soil and compost, but microorganisms in the fruiting body have received only a little attention. To get an overview of phylogenetic diversity of microorganisms in the fruiting body of A. bisporus, as well as to screen antimicrobial and mushroom growth-promoting strains, and eventually intensify mushroom
