Progress with biocontrol of Alisma (2000)

Cother, E


This IREC Farmers Newsletter presents information and progress on the RIRDC project DAN 121A investigating biocontrol of Alisma and starfruit. The speed at which the biocontrol fungus causes disease can be manipulated by how the conidia are grown. Robust spore called chlamydospores, offer another form of inoculum for this fungus. The project is producing an infective inoculum of fungus Rhynchosporium alismatis for control.
