Effect of Endophytic Bacteria on Growth and Suppression of Ganoderma Infection in Oil Palm

  title={Effect of Endophytic Bacteria on Growth and Suppression of Ganoderma Infection in Oil Palm},
  author={Z Sapak and Sariah Meon and Zainal Abidin Mior Ahmad},
Basal stem rot (BSR) caused by Ganoderma boninense is an important disease of oil palm in Malaysia. Control of BSR is complex, because the disease occurs in the dynamic environment at the interface of the roots with soil. Endophytes as biocontrol agents offer possible advantages as they invade and proliferate in the plants to await the pathogens and they are insulated from any adverse conditions in the soil. Burkholderia cepacia (B3) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P3) isolated from symptomless oil… CONTINUE READING
