Your rating: None

Bacillus thuringiensis, commonly referred to as B.t. is a gram positive bacterium that produces insecticidal crystal proteins. This bacterium occurs naturally in the environment and has been used as a biological pesticide for more than 50 years. In order to manage the loss of stored grains and other agricultural products from insect infestation, many plant products have been evaluated for their toxic properties against different stored grain pests. In the present study, B.t. isolates from collected samples were grown on T3 (Tryptone, Tryptose, Yeast extract) media.

Los frutos de plátano son susceptibles a diversas enfermedades postcosecha, entre las cuales destaca la denominada pudrición de la corona originada por el patógeno Colletotrichum sp. ocasionando daños significativos en el fruto impidiendo su comercialización. Su control hasta la fecha, es mediante la aplicación de fungicidas, sin embargo, hoy en día se está en la búsqueda de implementar sistemas alternativos de control, y el ácido salicílico surge como un posible candidato para el tratamiento de dicha enfermedad.

Testing of Eight Medicinal Plant Extracts in Combination with Kresoxim-Methyl for Integrated Control of Botrytis cinerea in Apples

1
Average: 1 (1 vote)
Your rating: None

Botrytis cinerea is a fungus that causes gray mold on many fruit crops. Despite the availability of a large number of botryticides, the chemical control of gray mold has been hindered by the emergence of resistant strains. In this paper, tests were done to determine the botryticidal efficacy of selected plant extracts alone or combined with kresoxim-methyl.
