Principles of plant health management for ornamental plants.
TLDR
Continual introduction of new crops and new production technologies creates new opportunities for pathogens to exploit, such that new disease management tactics must be discovered and old ones rediscovered to achieve optimum health management for ornamentals. Expand
Suppression of Rhizoctonia solani on Impatiens by Enhanced Microbial Activity in Composted Swine Waste-Amended Potting Mixes.
TLDR
It is suggested that enhanced microbial activity, functional and population diversity of stable compost-amended mix were associated with suppressiveness to Rhizoctonia damping-off in impatiens. Expand
Identification, Mefenoxam Sensitivity, and Compatibility Type of Phytophthora spp. Attacking Floriculture Crops in North Carolina.
TLDR
Mating type and mefenoxam sensitivity were uniform among isolates of P. nicotianae and P. palmivora from a given crop at a given location, suggesting that epidemics within a location may have originated from a single source of inoculum. Expand
Pyrrolnitrin and phenazine production by Pseudomonas cepacia, strain 5.5B, a biocontrol agent of Rhizoctonia solani
TLDR
A purple pigment consistently produced in culture by strain 5.5B was isolated and identified as 4,9-dihydroxyphenazine-1,6-dicarboxylic acid dimethyl ester, a phenazine; in vitro inhibition of R. solani occurred with the phenazine. Expand
Phytophthora Blight and Dieback in North Carolina Nurseries During a 2003 Survey.
TLDR
Most cultivars of rhododendron surveyed, including 'English Roseum,' 'Nova Zembla,' and 'Roseum Elegans,' had less than 0.5% incidence of Phytophthora blight and dieback, whereas 'Lee's Dark Purple' had 3.8% disease incidence across all nurseries surveyed. Expand
Pyrrolnitrin production by Burkholderia cepacia and biocontrol of Rhizoctonia stem rot of poinsettia
TLDR
Improvement in biocontrol efficacy may be possible by adjusting culture conditions to optimize pyrrolnitrin production, according to Burkholderia cepacia strain 5.5B. Expand
Expression of induced systemic resistance in poinsettia cuttings against Rhizoctonia stem rot by treatment of stock plants with binucleate Rhizoctonia
TLDR
These results may be the first to demonstrate induced systemic resistance by BNR fungi during vegetation propagation where the biocontrol agent applied to roots of a stock plant was able to protect cuttings from Rhizoctonia solani during propagation. Expand
RELATION OF SMALL SOIL FAUNA TO PLANT DISEASE
This review focuses attention on an area of plant pathology which is cur­ rently receiving increased interest, namely, associations of soilborne plant pathogens with small animals that increaseExpand
