Protecting a cabbage field? Good viruses disable bad bacteria. Researchers are looking for horticulturists for field experiments

A remarkable new control technique against bacterial disease Xanthomonas is being developed for sprout and cabbage cultivation. This involves the use of bacteriophage (i.e. bacteria-eating) viruses that only attack specific, harmful plant bacteria. "After 7 years of research work in laboratories and...

Fertilization and disease control via soil bacteria? Promising results have been achieved in maize plants under cold stress and fungal infection.

Bacteria that can improve maize growth under cold temperatures and bacteria that can limit the effects of a fungal infection with Rhizoctonia solani were discovered by ILVO-VIB researcher Stien Beirinckx using the metabarcoding technique. With this knowledge, researchers can start 'programming' the ...
