Conidium "fitness" in Trichoderma
(Lincoln University, 2014)
A major constraint for use of biocontrol agents (BCAs) is inconsistent performance under changeable environmental conditions. This study aimed to develop new knowledge of effects of growth conditions, to increase persistence ...
Bio-control of the soil-borne pathogen Rhizoctonia solani of radish (Raphanus sativus L.) by Trichoderma species
(Lincoln University, 2018)
The soil-borne fungus Rhizoctonia solani is an important pathogen of Brassicae crops worldwide, including red vegetable radish (Raphanus sativus). However, the impact of R. solani on New Zealand radish production has not ...
Biases in the metabarcoding of plant pathogens using rust fungi as a model system
Plant pathogens such as rust fungi (Pucciniales) are of global economic and ecological importance. This means there is a critical need to reliably and cost‐effectively detect, identify, and monitor these fungi at large ...
The Ustilago maydis repetitive effector Rsp3 blocks the antifungal activity of mannose-binding maize proteins
(Nature Publishing Group, 2018-04-27)
To cause disease in maize, the biotrophic fungus Ustilago maydis secretes a large arsenal of effector proteins. Here, we functionally characterize the repetitive effector Rsp3 (repetitive secreted protein 3), which shows ...
Draft genome sequences of two New Zealand Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris isolates, ICMP 4013 and ICMP 21080
(American Society for Microbiology, 2015-09)
Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris is a necrotrophic bacterial pathogen of crucifers. We report here the draft genome sequences of isolates ICMP 4013 and ICMP 21080 from New Zealand. These sequences will facilitate the ...
Production of microsclerotia from entomopathogenic fungi and use in maize seed coating as delivery for biocontrol against Fusarium graminearum
(Frontiers Media S.A., 2020-12)
The commercial use of the entomopathogenic fungi Metarhizium spp. in biopesticides has gained more interest since the discovery that several species of this genus are able to colonize roots. In general, commercial products ...
