- ... In the present study, the efficiency of the biocontrol agent Paenibacillus alvei (strain K165) to suppress Verticillium wilt of olive tree was evaluated in greenhouse and field experiments. In planta bioassays were conducted under greenhouse conditions and revealed that K165 significantly decreased symptoms on the susceptible cultivar ‘Amfissis’ by 44.5 and 51.6 % of the final disease severity ind ...

- ... Verticillium wilt in olive trees, caused by the soil-borne fungus Verticillium dahliae, is one of the most serious diseases of this crop due to high tree mortality and the difficulty of control. One of the major constraints to developing control measures against this disease is the lack of inoculation methods to evaluate the effectiveness of treatments. Here, we compared five inoculation methods f ...
