Mycoflora of coffee beans in the Philippines.
The mycoflora of coffee beans in the Philippines we re determined after harvest, after drying, and roasted coffee from retail markets. Twenty-six spec ies from 14 genera were recovered. AspergillusExpand
Biocontrol activities of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens DGA14 isolated from banana fruit surface against banana crown rot-causing pathogens
Abstract Two bacteria, isolated from the surface of banana fruits, one forming a creamy white colony and the other, dry yeast like colony were screened for in vitro antagonism toward LasiodiplodiaExpand
Survey of Philippine coffee beans for the presence of ochratoxigenic fungi
In 2012 to 2014, Philippine green coffee beans from Coffea arabica in Benguet and Ifugao; Coffea canephora var. Robusta in Abra, Cavite, and Ifugao; and Coffea liberica and Coffea excelsea fromExpand
Control of crown rot-causing fungal pathogens of banana by inorganic salts and a surfactant
Abstract Crown rot, a disease complex caused by various fungi, is an economically significant postharvest disease in bananas. Control of banana crown rot-causing fungal pathogens, such asExpand
Identification of Clonostachys and Trichoderma spp. from banana fruit surfaces by cultural, morphological and molecular methods
Species of Clonostachys and Trichoderma isolated from the surface of bananas were highly antagonistic to crown rot-causing fungal pathogens of banana, such as Lasiodiplodia theobromae, ThielaviopsisExpand
Inhibitory influence of inorganic salts on banana postharvest pathogens and preliminary application to control crown rot
Lasiodiplodia theobromae, Thielaviopsis paradoxa, Colletotrichum musae, C. gloeosporioides, Fusarium verticillioides, and F. oxysporum were screened in vitro for sensitivity to Na2CO3, NaHCO3, CaCl2,Expand
Inhibitory influence of biocontrol agents, plant oils, and an inorganic salt on Mycosphaerella fijiensis and Cordana musae
The search for alternatives to chemical treatments to control the causal pathogens of black sigatoka and Cordana leaf spot in banana was studied in vitro. We examined the effect of biocontrol agents,Expand
Preservation of Mestizo 1 (PSB Rc72H) seeds using hermetic and low temperature storage technologies.
The technical feasibility and cost effectiveness of Hermetic Storage (HS) Technology using Volcani Cubes or GrainPro Cocoons as an alternative storage in preserving the quality of registered PSBExpand
An integrated approach with hot water treatment and salt in the control of crown rot disease and preservation of quality in banana
An integrated approach using hot water treatment (HWT) and salt in the control of crown rot disease and preservation of quality in banana was investigated. The efficacy of HWT and either sodiumExpand
