The effect of extracts of the brown algae Cystoseira myriophylloides, Laminaria digitata, and Fucus spiralis against the tomato pathogens Verticillium dahliae and Agrobacterium tumefaciens was evaluated in vitro and in the greenhouse. A significant inhibition of growth was observed only with methanolic seaweed extracts (MSE). Disease resistance was assessed in the greenhouse against Verticillium wilt using spray application of aqueous seaweed extracts (ASE) on the whole plant or using seed… 

Inhibition of Mycotoxigenic Fungi in Different Vegetable Matrices by Extracts of Trichoderma Species

Both extracts showed a significant inhibitory activity on mycotoxigenic pathogens and significantly reduced Log CFU/g compared to the control and reduced mycotoxin production in a dose dependent manner and with a long-lasting effect.

Biostimulants derived from red seaweed stimulate the plant defence mechanism in rice against Magnaporthe oryzae

Seaweed extracts contain many bio-elicitors that can greatly improve natural plant immunity, so stimulating plant immunity with these formulations is a sustainable approach. The red seaweed (

Towards the valorization of the invasive seaweeds Caulerpa cylindracea and Asparagopsis taxiformis in the Mediterranean Sea: applications for in vitro plant regeneration and crop protection

Observations demonstrated that it would be possible to transform and perhaps manage the biomass of these invasive algae, which could pave the way to multiple valorizations.

Antibacterial Activity of Seaweed Extracts against Plant Pathogenic Bacteria

Chemical pesticides have a major impact on biological diversity, alongside habitat loss and climate change with the need to replace the use of these hazardous chemicals with ecologically sound

Algae and Cyanobacteria as Biocontrol Agents of Fungal Plant Pathogens

Algae for their biostimulant and antifungal effects may be considered useful tools to reduce the input of chemicals in integrated pest management strategies.

Antifungal Properties of Fucus vesiculosus L. Supercritical Fluid Extract Against Fusarium culmorum and Fusarium oxysporum

This study is the first report on antifungal properties of the brown algae F. vesiculosus scCO2 extract against Fusarium culmorum and FUSarium oxysporum phytopathogens and demonstrates an ability to inhibit 100% growth of macroconidia and cause their total degradation.

Biostimulant Properties of Seaweed Extracts in Plants: Implications towards Sustainable Crop Production

The growth and functional effects evoked by seaweed extracts and their modes and mechanisms of action in crop plants which are responsible for elicitor and phytostimulatory activities are discussed.

Marine Macroalgae, a Source of Natural Inhibitors of Fungal Phytopathogens

This review aims to gather the maximum of information addressing macroalgae extracts with potential inhibition against fungal phytopathogens, including the best inhibitory results, while presenting some already reported mechanisms of action.

A review of multiple biostimulant and bioeffector benefits of AMPEP, an extract of the brown alga Ascophyllum nodosum, as applied to the enhanced cultivation and micropropagation of the commercially important red algal carrageenophyte Kappaphycus alvarezii and its selected cultivars

This paper reviews studies on Kappaphycus including the use of AMPEP specifically and also some alternative extracts to mitigate both biotic and abiotic stressors, using examples from micropropagation, field cultivation, endophyte mitigation and impacts on the resulting carrageenan qualities.

Opportunities and Challenges in Studies of Host-Pathogen Interactions and Management of Verticillium dahliae in Tomatoes

The current knowledge on the race and population structure of V. dahliae is discussed, including pathogenicity factors, host genes, proteins, enzymes involved in defense, and the emergent management strategies and future research directions for managing Verticillium wilt in tomatoes are discussed.



Commercial extract from the brown seaweed Ascophyllum nodosum reduces fungal diseases in greenhouse cucumber

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.

Duality of acibenzolar-S-methyl in the inhibition of pathogen growth and induction of resistance during the interaction tomato/vertcillium dahliae

The results suggest that ASM protects tomato from V. dahlia directly by inhibiting the growth of pathogen and indirectly by activating plant defenses responses.

Extracts from green and brown seaweeds protect tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) against the necrotrophic fungus Alternaria solani

Polysaccharide-enriched seaweed extracts obtained from green, Ulva lactuca and Caulerpa sertularioides, and brown algae, Padina gymnospora and Sargassum liebmannii, induced protection against the necrotrophic fungus Alternaria solani in tomato plants.

Effect of chitosan seed treatment as elicitor of resistance to Fusarium graminearum in wheat.

The chitosan seed treatment induced a decrease in disease severity and enhanced quantitative yield parameters, suggesting the possibility of the use of chitOSan as a seed treatment in crop protection in order to improve the plant defense response.

Anti-Phytopathogenic Activities of Macro-Algae Extracts

The results suggest that macro-algae contain compounds with different chemical properties which could be considered for controlling specific plant pathogens.

Control of Phytophthora melonis damping-off, induction of defense responses, and gene expression of cucumber treated with commercial extract from Ascophyllum nodosum

It is suggested that seaweed extracts enhance disease resistance in cucumber probably through induction of defense enzymes and genes, and also accumulated higher level of phenolics compared to water controls.

Possibilities of biological and chemical control of Verticillium wilt in pepper

On the basis of macroscopic and microscopic characters of the isolates originating from eight localities in Serbia, it was established that they apparently belong to the speciesVerticillum dahliae, and all of them caused marked wilting symptoms on pepper plants 40 days after inoculation.

The suppressive effect of a commercial extract from Durvillaea potatorum and Ascophyllum nodosum on infection of broccoli by Plasmodiophora brassicae

It is hypothesised that the suppression of infection by the seaweed extract was due to its stimulation of resistance mechanisms in the host, which is possibly related to laminarins in the extract and/or the effect of exogenous growth regulators or undiscovered molecules in the Extract disrupting the infection process.

Effect of aqueous extract of Sargassum johnstonii Setchell & Gardner on growth, yield and quality of Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.

The study reports auxin- and cytokinin-like activity, and the presence of macro- (Ca, Mg, Na, and K) and micronutrients (Fe, Cu, Zn, and Mn), in seaweed extract of S. johnstonii, which makes it a potential biofertilizer.
