1995: Mitchell, IN
An alternative to soil fumigation with methyl bromide is needed for control of
Fusariurn root rot and damping-off of conifer seedlings. Studies with eastern white pine (Pinus
strobus, L.) and red pine (P. resinosa, Ait.) are underway to develop biological control
microorganisms for application to conifer seed. Preliminary results show an ectomycorrhizal
fungus, as well as bacteria derived from the rhizosphere, suppress Fusariurn root rot of eastern
white pine.
