Double-sided battle: The role of ethylene during Monilinia spp. infection in peach at different phenological stages
(Plant Physiology and Biochemistry, 2019-10-02)
Controversy exists on whether ethylene is involved in determining fruit resistance or susceptibility against biotic stress. In this work, the hypothesis that ethylene biosynthesis in peaches at different ...
Breeding strategies for identifying superior peach genotypes resistant to brown rot
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2018-11-01)
A sustainable approach to control the incidence of brown rot in pre- and post-harvest management is to select genotypes with high contents of antioxidant compounds and tolerance to Monilinia laxa (Aderh. ...
Novel film‐forming formulations of the biocontrol agent Candida sake CPA‐1: biocontrol efficacy and performance at field conditions in organic wine grapes
(Pest Management Science, 2018-09-07)
BACKGROUND: The biocontrol agent (BCA)Candida sakeCPA-1 has previously effectively reducedBotrytisbunch rot (BBR) andit was also suggested as a promising strategy to control sour rot in grapes under ...
Shelf life improvement of the biocontrol agent Candida sake CPA-1 by suitable package and storage conditions
Agrochemical companies are increasing their interest in the production of biopesticides based on biocontrol agents (BCAs), mainly due to the need to reduce the synthetic fungicide application and the ...
Exploring sources of resistance to brown rot in an interspecific almond × peach population
(Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, 2019-02-19)
BACKGROUND: Monilinia spp. are responsible for brown rot, one of the most significant stone fruit diseases. Planting resistant cultivars seems a promising alternative, although most commercial cultivars ...
Differential contribution of the two major polygalacturonases from Penicillium digitatum to virulence towards citrus fruit
(International Journal of Food Microbiology, 2018-05-31)
The fungus Penicillium digitatum is the causal agent of the citrus green mould, the major postharvest diseases of citrus fruit. Lesions on the surface of infected fruits first appear as soft areas around ...
Dry formulations of the biocontrol agent Candida sakeCPA‐1 using fluidised bed drying to control the main postharvest diseases on fruits
(Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, 2017-01-23)
BACKGROUND: The biocontrol agentCandida sakeCPA-1 is effective against several diseases. Consequently, the optimisationof a dry formulation ofC. saketo improve its shelf life and manipulability is ...
Environmental fate and behaviour of the biocontrol agent Bacillus amyloliquefaciens CPA-8 after preharvest application to stone fruit
(Pest Management Science, 2017-09-30)
BACKGROUND:Bacillus amyloliquefaciensstrain CPA-8 has been described as an effective biocontrol agent to control brownrot in stone fruit for both preharvest and postharvest applications. However, no ...
Unravelling the contribution of the Penicillium expansum PeSte12 transcription factor to virulence during apple fruit infection
(Food Microbiology, 2017-08-12)
Verifying the biocontrol activity of novel film‐forming formulations of Candida sake CPA‐1: resilience in relation to environmental factors, rainfall episodes, and control of Botrytis cinerea on different hosts
(Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, 2019-04-13)
BACKGROUND The efficacy of Candida sake CPA‐1 as a biocontrol agent against several diseases has been studied since it was isolated 20 years ago. However, it was only recently that two suitable and ...
