Catalogue: Ground Cover
"Of the 27 crop pathogens studied so far using growth cabinets with temperature and CO 2 controls, disease severity was found to increase for a majority of pathogens under high temperatures and CO 2 ," Dr Chakraborty says... We can expect new pathogen strains to emerge after fewer infection cycles.".. Dr Chakraborty states that our current knowledge is inadequate to deal with plant disease impacts and that the kind of experiment he favours is called 'FACE' - free to air CO 2 enrichment - in which communities of plants and pathogens are studied under field conditions but with artificially raised levels of CO2...
