Monilina control in stone fruit (Final result)

Brown rot caused by Monilinia spp. is one of the economically most important fungal diseases of stone fruit causing substantial pre-harvest and post- harvest losses worldwide. In BIOCOMES we aimed to complete the development of two BCAs: Bacillus amyloliquefaciens CPA-8 and Penicillium frequentans 909, to obtain microorganism-based products that provide an effective strategy to control brown rot disease. Specifically, this work aimed to meet regulation requirements to develop products suitable to be registered and commercialised: molecular maker design, physiological characterisation, mode of action, production and formulation and the definition and validation of new control strategies in European stone fruit producing countries.
