Microbial enrichment to enhance the disease suppressive activity of compost
Abstract Compost amended soil has been found to be suppressive against plant diseases in various cropping systems. The level and reproducibility of disease suppressive properties of compost might beExpand
History of potato wart disease in Europe – a proposal for harmonisation in defining pathotypes
Potato wart disease, caused by the chytridiomycete Synchytrium endobioticum, was first introduced into Europe in the late 19th century. It spread quickly, and today is reported in 15 EuropeanExpand
The role of organic matter in the population dynamics of the endoparasitic nematophagous fungus Drechmeria coniospora in microcosms
Addition of organic matter to soil may indirectly enhance nematophagous fungi. The effect of organic amendments on the population dynamics of the endoparasitic nematophagous fungus DrechmeriaExpand
Resistance of potato cultivars to Synchytrium endobioticum in field and laboratory tests, risk of secondary infection, and implications for phytosanitary regulations
Laboratory (Spieckennann) tests, pot tests and field tests provided concordant evidence for the partial nature of resistance of potatoes to pathotypes 1 (Dl) and 6 (01) of Synchytriwn endobioticum.Expand
Development of PCR-based Detection Methods for the Quarantine Phytopathogen Synchytrium endobioticum, Causal Agent of Potato Wart Disease
PCR-based methods were developed for the detection and quantification of the potato pathogen Synchytrium endobioticum in soil extracts and in planta. PCR primers, based on the internal transcribedExpand
Adhesive knob formation by conidia of the nematophagous fungusDrechmeria coniospora
We studied conidiogenesis and adhesive knob formation (maturation) by newly developed conidia of the nematophagous fungusDrechmeria coniospora. Upon conidiogenesis on infected nematodes or duringExpand
Biotrophic mycoparasitism byVerticillium biguttatum onRhizoctonia solani
Verticillium biguttatum cannot utilise cellulose or nitrate-nitrogen and it requires biotin for growth, yet it grew and sporulated abundantly onRhizoctonia solani on cellulose, obtaining at leastExpand
Direct examination of soil for sporangia of Synchytrium endobioticum using chloroform, calcium chloride and zinc sulphate as extraction reagents
Fields infested with Synchytrium endobioticum can be descheduled when the soil is found free from sporangia of S. endobioticum. For direct examination, EPPO Standard PM 3/59 describes a soilExpand
From single to multiplex detection of plant pathogens: pUMA, a new concept of multiplex detection using microarrays.
An overview is given of rapid methods for the detection of plant-related organisms in plant material, soil, compost, water, etc. Protein-based detection assays such as isozyme analysis, ELISA,Expand
