Increase of plant resistance with rhizosphere competent entomopathogenic fungi (EPF)

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

Entomopathogenic fungi are able to kill insects and are as such a potential mean for pest control. Recently it was discovered that these fungi can also colonize plant roots. Most previous work with EPF has ignored the habitat preferences and survival of the fungus outside of the host. It is possible that factors associated with fungal biology outside of the host are more important when selecting an isolate than how pathogenic it is against a particular host in a laboratory bioassay.
