Final Report: DAS00027 - Beneficial wheat rhizobiota

Plain text source: 
PEM bacteria are important as they are common, suppress multiple diseases, interact with other organisms to increase suppression and can be correlated with reduced disease in the field... Crop selection could be used to increase suppressive microbes and enhance disease suppression on-farm... In summary, the project increased our understanding of disease suppression and the organisms involved, identified potential biocontrol inoculants that can reduce disease in the field as seed coatings to provide in-season Rhizoctonia disease control, and identified a potential strategy using crop selection to increase naturally occurring disease suppression in the field to provide long-term control of soilborne fungal diseases...
