Abstract:
he use of the sclerotial mycoparasite Coniothyrium minitans as a biological control agent of diseases caused by sclerotium-forming pathogens especially Sclerotinia sclerotiorum is briefly reviewed. A number of studies have examined production and application methods, integrated control, ecology, and modes of action in order to understand the biology of the mycoparasite and enhance activity and reproducibility of use. Recently, development of a number of molecular-based techniques has begun to allow the examination of genes involved in mycoparasitism. Some of these procedures have been applied to identify pathogenicity genes involved in the infection of sclerotia of S. sclerotiorum by C. minitans and this work is discussed.
