Safety of Microorganisms Intended for Pest and Plant Disease Control: A Framework for Scientific Evaluation☆
TLDR
Existing practices for managing microorganisms in the environment provide experience and options for managing the risks of microorganisms applied for pest and disease control, and a scientific framework for this process is provided. Expand
Biocontrol agents applied individually and in combination for suppression of soilborne diseases of cucumber
TLDR
These results indicate that antagonism among combinations of biocontrol agents can vary with the assay system employed and substantiate other studies reporting enhanced biocOntrol performance with certain combinations ofBiocontroll agents. Expand
Potential of olive mill waste and compost as biobased pesticides against weeds, fungi, and nematodes.
TLDR
The study shows the high potential of naturally occurring chemicals present inTPOMW and TPOMW composts that should be further investigated as bio-pesticides for their use in sustainable agricultural systems. Expand
Activity of fungal culture filtrates against soybean cyst nematode and root-knot nematode egg hatch and juvenile motility
TLDR
This study identified fungal isolates capable of producing compounds active against these nematodes, and demonstrated that there was a low correlation in activity against SCN and RKN. Expand
Nematode-Antagonistic Trichothecenes from Fusarium equiseti
TLDR
Two trichothecene compounds were isolated that inhibited egg hatch and immobilized second-stage juveniles of this nematode, the first published report of these compounds affecting plant-parasitic nematodes. Expand
Evaluation of Trichoderma virens and Burkholderia cepacia for antagonistic activity against root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita.
TLDR
The bacterium Burkholderia cepacia and the fungus Trichoderma virens were investigated for activity against the nematode Meloidogyne incognita and it was found that the inhibitory factors in the in vitroassays were non-enzymic. Expand
Evaluation of nematicides for southern root-knot nematode management in lima bean
TLDR
Two new nematicides, fluensulfone and fluopyram, show good potential for managing RKN in lima bean experiments conducted in greenhouse and microplot settings. Expand
Isolation of flavipin, a fungus compound antagonistic to plant-parasitic nematodes
TLDR
An isolate of the fungus Chaetomium globosum produced culture broths that inhibited in vitro egg hatch and juvenile mobility of root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne incognita) and hatch of soybean cyst nematODE (Heterodera glycines) and flavipin, a low molecular weight compound, was the fungus metabolite responsible for most of the nematodes-antagonistic activity. Expand
APPLICATION OF BURKHOLDERIA CEPACIA AND TRICHODERMA VIRENS , ALONE AND IN COMBINATIONS, AGAINST MELOIDOGYNE INCOGNITA ON BELL PEPPER
TLDR
Bell pepper seeds and seedlings were treated with three potentially beneficial microbes, applied alone and in combinations, to compare effects of these formulations on rootknot nematode populations and on plant growth in the greenhouse. Expand
Effects of Geldanamycin on Hatching and Juvenile Motility in Caenorhabditis elegans and Heterodera glycines
TLDR
It is indicated that geldanamycin-producing strains of Streptomyces may be useful as biocontrol agents for nematodes and suggest that the heat shock chaperone Hsp90, the known molecular target of geldAnamycin, may be involved in nematode egg hatch and motility. Expand
