Microbial cyanide production in the rhizosphere in relation to potato yield reduction and Pseudomonas SPP-mediated plant growth-stimulation
Inhibition of root cell energy metabolism is suggested to be responsible for potato yield reductions in short potato-rotation soils. Hydrogen cyanide is the microbial metabolile possibly involved inExpand

Iron availability affects induction of systemic resistance to fusarium wilt of radish by Pseudomonas fluorescens
A special bioassay on rock wool was used to study the influence of iron availability on the induction of systemic resistance in radish (Raphanus sativus L.) against Fusarium wilt mediated byExpand

Induced resistance and phytoalexin accumulation in biological control of Fusarium wilt of carnation by Pseudomonas sp. strain WCS417r
The involvement of mechanisms other than competition for iron in biological control of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. dianthi of carnation by Pseudomonas sp. strain WCS417r was investigated. Pathogen andExpand

Interactions of Deleterious and Beneficial Rhizosphere Microorganisms and the Effect of Cropping Practices
Evidence is increasing that the saprophytic microflora of the rhizosphere includes both deleterious and beneficial elements that have the potential to influence plant growth and crop yieldsExpand

Induction of systemic resistance against fusarium wilt of radish by lipopolysaccharides of Pseudomonas fluorescens
In commercial greenhouse trials, Pseudomonas fluorescens strain WCS374 suppressed Fusarium wilt and increased radish yield. In bioassays, the involvement of lipopolysaccharides (LPSs) in induction ofExpand

Selection of Antagonistic Fluorescent Pseudomonas spp. and their Root Colonization and Persistence following Treatment of Seed Potatoes
One hundred and twelve fluorescent Pseudomonas isolates from potato periderm were screened for antagonistic activity in vitro against 5 pathogenic and saprophytic fungi, 5 Gram-positive bacteriaExpand

Dose-response relationships in biological control of fusarium wilt of radish by Pseudomonas spp.
The dose-response relationships in the suppression of Fusarium wilt of radish by Pseudomonas putida strain WCS358 and P. fluorescens strain WCS374 were investigated. The sole mechanism involved inExpand

Biocontrol of fusarium wilt of radish in commercial greenhouse trials by seed treatment with Pseudomonas fluorescens WCS374
In 1989, research was initiated on biological control of Fusarium wilt of radish by the plant growth-promoting rhizobacterium strain, Pseudomonas fluorescens WCS374, in a commercial greenhouse.Expand

Reduction of Yield Depressions in High Frequency Potato Cropping Soil after Seed Tuber Treatments with Antagonistic Fluorescent Pseudomonas spp.
Severe yield depressions observed in high frequency potato cropping caused by microbial factors other than eelworms or known pathogens (narrow rotation effect) were reproduced in pot experiments.Expand

Biological control of pathogens with rhizobacteria
Present knowledge on the biological control of soil-borne plant pathogens by rhizosphere inhabiting bacteria, especially fluorescent Pseudomonas spp., is discussed. Attention is paid to the use ofExpand
