The Biology, Ecology, and Control of Sclerotium Rolfsii
TLDR
This review summarizes the pertinent literature on the biology, ecology, and control of S. rolfsii (including S. delphinii) published since 1965 and evaluates research.
Genetic Change Within Populations of Phytophthora infestans in the United States and Canada During 1994 to 1996: Role of Migration and Recombination.
TLDR
Ability to infect both potato and tomato apparently did not increase the fitness of this genotype relative to US-8, as predicted previously, and it generally was not possible to predict which genotypes would be present in a location from 1 year to the next.
Metabolic engineering of novel ketocarotenoid production in carrot plants
TLDR
The results show that carrots are suitable for biopharming ketocarotenoid production for applications to the functional food, neutraceutical and aquaculture industries.
Using fungi and yeasts to manage vegetable crop diseases.
Commercial extract from the brown seaweed Ascophyllum nodosum reduces fungal diseases in greenhouse cucumber
TLDR
Seaweed extracts enhance disease resistance in cucumber probably through induction of defense genes or enzymes, as well as accumulating higher level of phenolics compared to water controls.
Genetic engineering of plants to enhance resistance to fungal pathogens—a review of progress and future prospects
TLDR
The use of tissue-specific or pathogen-inducible promoters, and the engineered expression of resistance genes, synthetic antimicrobial peptides, and elicitor molecules that induce defense responses have the potential to provide commercially useful broad-spectrum disease resistance in the not-too-distant future.
Efficacy of Biological and Chemical Treatments for Control of Fusarium Root and Stem Rot on Greenhouse Cucumber.
TLDR
The results from this study indicate that several different approaches can be used at seeding to control Fusarium root and stem rot on greenhouse cucumber, and that the efficacy of the biological control agents was affected by seasonal differences in growing conditions, which affected the incidence and severity of the disease.
Combined expression of chitinase and lipid transfer protein genes in transgenic carrot plants enhances resistance to foliar fungal pathogens
TLDR
Two pathogenesis-related protein genes consisting of a barley chitinase (chi-2) and a wheat lipid-transfer-protein (ltp) were introduced singly and in combination into carrot plants via Agrobacterium-mediated transformation using the phosphinothricin acetyl transferase (bar) gene as a selectable marker to significantly enhance resistance to necrotrophic fungal pathogens.
