The interaction between endophytic Fusarium species and Eldana saccharina (Lepidoptera) following in vitro mutagenesis for F. sacchari tolerance to control the borer in sugarcane.
Eldana saccharina is a major pest in the South African sugar industry. Stalk damage by this borer and infection of bored tissue by opportunistic fungi result in loss of biomass and sucrose content, respectively. Amongst ...
In vitro generation of somaclonal variant plants of sugarcane (Saccharum spp. hybrids) for tolerance to toxins produced by Fusarium sacchari.
The fungus Fusarium sacchari (Butler) Gams causes stem rot in sugarcane especially in association with the stem borer Eldana saccharina Walker. Sugarcane plants tolerant to F. sacchari PNG40 were obtained by chemical ...
