Crop rotation, cultivar resistance, and fungicides/biofungicides for managing clubroot (Plasmodiophora brassicae) on canola
Abstract Select biofungicides and fungicides, used alone or with cultivar resistance or crop rotation, were assessed for their potential in integrated management of clubroot disease. The syntheticExpand

Studying and modelling the combined effect of temperature and water activity on the growth rate of P. expansum.
The effect of solutes, water activity (a(w), 0.890--0.980) and temperature (5--25 degrees C) on the mycelial growth rate of Penicillium expansum was evaluated. The growth rate dropped as theExpand

A Box-Behnken design for predicting the combined effects of relative humidity and temperature on antagonistic yeast population density at the surface of apples.
The objective of this work was to develop models predicting the combined effects of relative humidity (RH, 75-98%), temperature (5-25 degrees C), and initial applied yeast concentration (10(4)-10(8)Expand

In vitro effects of water activity, temperature and solutes on the growth rate of P. italicum Wehmer and P. digitatum Sacc.
Aims:  To evaluate the effect of water activity (aw 0·98–0·89, adjusted with glycerol, sorbitol, glucose, or NaCl) and temperature (5–25°C) on the lag phase and radial growth rate (mm day−1) of theExpand

UV protectants for Candida oleophila (strain O), a biocontrol agent of postharvest fruit diseases
This study investigated the influence of UV-B radiation (280‐320 nm) on survival of Candida oleophila strain O, an antagonist yeast that prevents postharvest diseases caused by Botrytis cinerea andExpand

Predictive modelling of temperature and water activity (solutes) on the in vitro radial growth of Botrytis cinerea Pers.
The objective of this work was to develop validated models predicting the 'in vitro' effect of a(w) and temperature on the radial growth of Botrytis cinerea. The growth rate (g, mm d(-1)) of B.Expand

Assessment of Pichia anomala (strain K) efficacy against blue mould of apples when applied pre- or post-harvest under laboratory conditions and in orchard trials
The yeast Pichia anomala strain K was selected in Belgium from the apple surface for its antagonistic activity against post-harvest diseases of apples. The efficacy of this strain against P. expansumExpand

Efficacy assessment of Candida oleophila (strain O) and Pichia anomala (strain K) against major postharvest diseases of citrus fruits in Morocco.
Two yeasts, Candida oleophila (strain O) and Pichia anomala (strain K), were previously selected for their antagonistic activity against postharvest diseases on apples and pears. The objective of theExpand
