Biological Control of Crop Diseases (Books in Soils, Plants by Samuel S. Gnanamanickam

By Samuel S. Gnanamanickam

With contributions from greater than 30 across the world well known specialists, this publication combines assurance of thought with insurance of world practices. Highlighting the daily demanding situations of natural crop administration for budget friendly real-world program, the booklet explores the organic keep an eye on of illnesses in 12 significant plants. It makes a speciality of using host plant resistance via transgenics and brought about systemic resistance as part of organic regulate. themes coated comprise the function of biocontrol brokers for signalling resistance, powerful ecofriendly substitute to wrestle bacterial, fungal, and viral infestation, and transgenic vegetation in affliction administration.

Datta et al. [17], on individual classes of PR protein (PR-1 through PR-11), provide detailed information on the isolation, characterization, and function of individual PR proteins in plants, including a chapter on transgenic research. There is always some selectivity in the interaction between a PR protein and its intended target pathogens, in that PR proteins represent generalized plant defense responses for broad, albeit incomplete, protection against diverse pathogens (Table 4). Many transgenic plants have now been developed with constitutive inducible expression of PR proteins at effective levels and could be used as a tool to enhance or stabilize yield in areas where pathogens and pests are endemic (Tables 5, 6).
