Microbial Antagonism Toward Botrytis Bunch Rot of Grapes in Multiple Field Tests Using One Bacillus ginsengihumi Strain and Formulated Biological Control Products
The results confirmed the suitability of several biological control products under the conditions in vineyards in southwestern France, while also highlighting the good performance of the novel experimental BCA B. ginsengihumi S38 strain.
Chemical composition and antifungal activity of plant extracts traditionally used in organic and biodynamic farming
White willow and absinthe ethanolic extracts were found to be the most effective in particular against Plasmopara viticola, with a total inhibition of spores germination when applied at 1000 mg/L.
VOCs Are Relevant Biomarkers of Elicitor-Induced Defences in Grapevine
Characterise and compare VOC emissions in response to other elicitors and detect several VOCs, including the sesquiterpene α-farnesene, which constitutes a response of grapevine to elicitors of various chemical structures.
On-Farm Trials Reveal Significant but Uncertain Control of Botrytis cinerea by Aureobasidium pullulans and Potassium Bicarbonate in Organic Grapevines
Assessment of the efficacy of two commercial biopesticides, based on potassium bicarbonate and Aureobasidium pullulans, in reducing the incidence of gray mold in organic vineyards in Southwestern France confirms that potassium bICarbonate is an interesting biopeland, but the amount of uncertainty points to the need for further research.
