The establishment and maintenance of these beneficial microorganisms in the soil must be achieved year after year, because in this way biocontrol
agents are established and reproducing, thus increasing the soil suppressiveness.
That way, even if a few stable flies emerge, they will be sterile, so no progeny, which further assures an effective biocontrol
Induced resistance is recognized as an important mode of biocontrol
in vegetative tissue (Aidemark et al.
is based in Bellevue, WA (US), with over 100 employees worldwide.
However, little literature is available concerning the use of bacterial biocontrol
agents against leaf spot diseases of dracaena.
means less pesticide used and less adverse impact on the environment.
In evaluating the biocontrol
efficacy of Cg-2, application through seed treatment of the suspension culture with or without challenge inoculation with B.
DISCUSSION--The subject of biological invasions and biocontrol
is of great concern (Rose et al.
The present study was conducted as a long term evaluation of biocontrol
of leafy spurge in northern Utah.
Landcare Research scientists said they had been searching for biocontrols
before lantana became widespread and had settled on a pathogenic fungi.
If only every land owner and local government unit will help raise biocontrol
agents, then we will no longer need to resort to trunk injection of much criticized insecticides.
Therefore, more emphasis is laid on the combined use of biocontrol
agents, for improved disease control and also to overcome the inconsistent performance of the BCA.
