Evaluation of the potential use of antagonistic microbes on grass species, turf and pasture, for disease control and growth stimulation.
Public tendency, of late, is to reduce liberal use of harmful synthesized chemicals for promoting plant health. Today, biological control is becoming a commonly cited disease control option. Biological control agents ...
Studies on the biocontrol of seedling diseases caused by Rhizoctonia solani and Pythium sp. on sorghum and tef.
Rhizoctonia solani and Pythium spp. are aggressive soil-borne fungal pathogens responsible for seed rot and seedling damping-off of many crops. With increased environmental and public concern over the use of ...
The use of potato and maize disease prediction models using automatic weather stations to time fungicide applications in KwaZulu-Natal.
Maize grey leaf spot (GLS), caused by Cercospora zeae-maydis, and potato late blight (LB), caused by Phytophthora infestans, are foliar diseases of maize and potato, two of the most widely ...
In vitro and in vivo screening of Bacillus spp. for biological control of Rhizoctonia solani.
The increasing concerns about chemical pesticides that are environmentally hazardous and the continuous development of resistance by palhogens to chemical pesticides have led to this study. Many studies have shown that ...
Seed-borne pathogens and the bean weevil (Acanthoscelides obtectus) in bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) seed and their effect on seed germination and vigour.
Two semi-selective media, MT and MSP, were compared for their ability to recover cells of the bacteria Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. phaseoli (Xap) and Pseudomonas syringae pv. phaseolicola (Psp), the causal organisms of ...
