Biological Control of Plant Diseases presents up-to-date research findings on disease management to provide you with a single-source reference text for developing a sustainable ecosystem that doesn’t depend on harmful and unhealthy agrochemicals. This unique book acts as a catalyst for change, presenting fresh ideas and innovative strategies. The Centerpiece of Plant Disease Control. Biological Control includes the use of natural or modified organisms, genes or gene products to reduce the effects of undesirable organisms (insect pests, plant pathogens, plant parasitic nematodes, weeds) and to favor desirable organisms such as crops, trees, animals and beneficial insects and microorganisms.
This book is the first to be devoted entirely to the biological control of plant pathogens. Although most of the book is not concerned with host resistance, the authors stress that host selection should not be treated as though unrelated to biological control and that when genetically resistant material is incorporated into agronomically or horticulturally desirable varieties, thus preventing Cited by: Table of Contents for Biological control of plant diseases / S.B.

Introduction The biological control of plant pathogens was detailed by Van Driesche & Bellows (). It involves the ecological management of a community of organisms. In the case of plant pathogens, however, there are two distinctions from biological control of organisms such as insects and plants. Biobest offers various biofungicides and plant vaccines for the biological control of plant diseases and physiological disorders.

Biological control is the control of disease by the application of biological agents to a host animal or plant that prevents the development of disease by a pathogen.
With regard to plant diseases the biocontrol agents are usually bacterial or fungal strains isolated from the endosphere or rhizosphere. Viruses can also be used as biocontrol agents and there is a Cited by: Biological and Cultural Tests for Control of Plant Diseases B&C Tests, Volume 21 () B&C Tests, Volume 20 () B&C Tests, Volume 19 () B&C Tests, Volume 18 () B&C Tests, Volume 17 () B&C Tests, Volume 16 () Please read this file first.
Click here for an Introduction to this Online Publication ISSN Biological control of plant diseases can be broadly defined as the use of one organism to influence the activities of a plant pathogen. Biocontrol organisms can be fungi, bacteria, or nematodes.
Most are natural inhabitants of the soil and the environment and are not pathogenic to birds, mammals (including humans), and fish. They are not genetically modified and. Cultural Practices for Reducing Crop Diseases. Certain cultural practices are invaluable in reducing plant disease losses.
A control program is enhanced whenever one can utilize as many methods of control as possible. New strains of an organism may develop that will attack resistant varieties or become tolerant to certain pesticides when these.

Biological Control of Plant Diseases 1. What is biological control of plant diseases. Biological control involves the use of one living organism to control another. This management technology has received much attention in recent times. Pros •Specific to a particular pest.
•Cheap after startup. •It works most of the time. Plant disease - Plant disease - Chemical control: A variety of chemicals are available that have been designed to control plant diseases by inhibiting the growth of or by killing the disease-causing pathogens.
Chemicals used to control bacteria (bactericides), fungi (fungicides), and nematodes (nematicides) may be applied to seeds, foliage, flowers, fruit, or soil. Start studying Unit Biological, Culture, adn CHemical Control of Pests.

Biological control agents (BCAs) are registered for use by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and have labels very similar to.

Hellmich, K. Gillette, L. Rice. Biological control is not currently a method which can be used to control most diseases of greenhouse ornamentals.
Although some examples of successful biological control of a plant disease are available they have not been readily employed commercially since they are specific to a particular disease on a relatively small group of crops.
Cultural practices (CPs) can be harnessed for the man-agement of foliar and soilborne diseases by creating an environment which is favorable for the crop and unfavor-able for the pathogen.
Certain CPs, e.g. flooding and san-itation, are used mainly for pest control while others, e.g. irrigation, can be used for both crop management and pest.Biological and Cultural Test Results.
