AMF-induced biocontrol against plant parasitic nematodes in Musa sp.: a systemic effect

  title={AMF-induced biocontrol against plant parasitic nematodes in Musa sp.: a systemic effect},
  author={A. F. Van Elsen and D. Gervacio and Rony Swennen and Dirk De Waele},
Although mycorrhizal colonization provides a bioprotectional effect against a broad range of soil-borne pathogens, including plant parasitic nematodes, the commercial use of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) as biocontrol agents is still in its infancy. One of the main reasons is the poor understanding of the modes of action. Most AMF mode of action studies focused on AMF-bacterial/fungal pathogens. Only few studies so far examined AMF–plant parasitic nematode interactions. Therefore, the aim… CONTINUE READING
