Effects of soil amendment with crabshell chitin on the growth of white clover (Trifolium repens L.) and perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.), and on populations of soil bacteria, fungi, and plant-parasitic and free-living nematodes were investigated in a pot trial. [...] Key Method Five soil samples were collected from Te Puke (Paengaroa Shallow Sand, a Typic Hapludand) and five from Hamilton (Bruntwood silt loam, an Aquic Hapludand), New Zealand.Expand

Chitin Amendment Increases Soil Suppressiveness toward Plant Pathogens and Modulates the Actinobacterial and Oxalobacteraceal Communities in an Experimental Agricultural Field
TLDR
The data revealed that chitin amendment had raised the suppressiveness of soil, in particular toward Verticillium dahliae, 9 months after the (second) treatment, extending to 2 years following treatment, and major effects of the added Chitin on the soil microbial communities were detected. Expand
Chitin Mixed in Potting Soil Alters Lettuce Growth, the Survival of Zoonotic Bacteria on the Leaves and Associated Rhizosphere Microbiology
TLDR
This is the first study to investigate the use of soil amendments to control the survival of S. enterica on plant leaves and to enhance the understanding of the response of the rhizosphere microbiome to chitin amendment. Expand
Long-term effects of eight soil health treatments to control plant-parasitic nematodes and Verticillium dahliae in agro-ecosystems
TLDR
It was demonstrated that in comparison to chemical control, additions of chitin, anaerobic soil disinfestation and marigold are already excellent alternatives for the control of plant-parasitic nematodes and V. dahliae. Expand
The impact of tall fescue ( Festuca arundinacea ) endophyte ( Neotyphodium spp.) on non target soil micro-organisms
TLDR
Most characteristics measured showed no differences between E+ and E– samples indicating that the presence of endophytes had no impact on non-target soil micro-organisms, and there were no differences in the functional diversity of rhizoplane micro- organisms due to endophyte. Expand
Plant-parasitic nematodes on pasture in New Zealand
TLDR
Progress made in white clover breeding programs in New Zealand is summarized and advances in genetic mapping and introgression as they affect resistance to nematodes are examined, together with observations which suggest that root-feeding nematode have little impact on yield and that the animal toxicity associated with Anguina seed galls in Australia is absent. Expand
Effects of the Applications of Chitin and Chitosan on Soil Organisms
TLDR
Chitin promoted bacterial and fungal abundance, leading to an increase in abundance of free-living soil nematodes that feed on decomposers and the ratio of saturated to unsaturated fatty acids was highest in the chitin-treated soil. Expand
Bacterial communities in chitin-amended soil as revealed by 16S rRNA gene based pyrosequencing
TLDR
The bacterial diversity and abundance in an agricultural soil supplemented with chitin that turned disease-suppressive and the emergence of chitinolytic bacteria under conditions of raised soil pH were investigated and two groups were found to be most responsive to the amendment. Expand
Use of pepper crop residues for the control of root-knot nematodes.
TLDR
Root galling indices were lower, and yields higher, on grafted plants, biofumigation with PCR and plastic cover, with similar values as MB treatment, suggesting that biofuming with PCR is an efficient non-chemical alternative to control M. incognita populations. Expand
Chitin and chitosan on Meloidogyne javanica management and on chitinase activity in tomato plants
TLDR
Soil-applied chitin, associated with leaf-sprayed chitosan, reduced M. javanica reproduction factor and its population due to an increase in chitinolyctic microorganisms in the soil, and in the activity of chit inase in tomato leaves 4 days after application. Expand
Transition of the Bacterial Community and Culturable Chitinolytic Bacteria in Chitin-treated Upland Soil: From Streptomyces to Methionine-auxotrophic Lysobacter and Other Genera
TLDR
Investigation of the transition of the bacterial community structure in chitin-degrading soil samples over time and the characteristics of chitinolytic bacteria suggested the involvement of Lysobacter as well as Streptomyces as chit in decomposers in the degradation of ch itin added to soil. Expand

Chitinous Materials from Blue Crab for Control of Root-Knot Nematode. I. Effect of Urea and Enzymatic Studies
TLDR
The efficacy of two chitinous materials derived from blue crab wastes for control of Meloidogyne arenaria was studied in a greenhouse experiment and combination treatments of urea + Clandosan 601 were not phytotoxic. Expand
Chitin Amendments for Control of Meloidogyne arenaria in Infested Soil
TLDR
The effect of amending soil with chitin on Meloidogyne arenaria (Neal) Chitwood was studied in a greenhouse experiment using silt loam from an infested peanut field and the soil was analyzed for soil enzymic activity and microbial populations. Expand
Chitin and Paecilomyces Lilacinus for Control of Meloidogyne arenaria
TLDR
Combinations of chitin and P lilacinus amendments are effective for control of M. arenaria and reduce GR values and the number of juveniles/g tomato roots. Expand
Use of chitin for controlling plant plant-parasitic nematodes
TLDR
Differences in fresh shoot weight between nematode-infected and nematodes-free plants amended with chitin were greater under non-irradiated than irradiated conditions, especially in the second cycle, and a higher level of chitinolytic microorganisms, particularly actinomycetes, was found in the first cycle. Expand
Differences in root and shoot development of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum L.) varieties across contrasting soil environments
TLDR
The root and shoot growth of three tomato varieties were compared in either a river-washed sand or an alluvial silty loam, with or without added nutrients, to determine factors influencing root growth and development. Expand
Studies of fungi in pasture soils
TLDR
Fungi isolated from the surfaces of live roots or root debris were compared for their ability to use a range of compounds as carbon and energy sources, and one isolate of Mortierella alpina was exceptional in not growing on xylose, sucrose, or pectin, and growing poorly on glucose. Expand
Invasion of white clover roots by fungi and other soil microorganisms
TLDR
It is confirmed that many of the fungi which comprise the diverse microtlora naturally present within white clover roots can invade growing root tissues; some may be potential root pathogens. Expand
Response of white clover cultivars to fertiliser nitrogen
TLDR
There was a significant difference among cultivars for N tolerance ratio in spring, calculated as N225 divided by the mean of N0 and N25 of clover yield, and Spring Nolerance ratio was not correlated with spring yield or any o... Expand

TLDR
Five weed-management strategies applied to asparagus and maize cropping systems near Hamilton, New Zealand confirm the important influence of microfaunal grazing on microfloral populations and the cycling of plant nutrients in the soil. Expand
