Microbial Ecology Applications for Pest Management and Environmental Protection Grant uri icon



  • Environmental application of microbial antagonists of plant pathogens offers prospects of environmentally benign plant disease control. Other microbes are important environmental pollutants, for example microbial pollution of water sources is a significant environmental problem. We will develop methods for effective use of a beneficial fungus for disease control in conifer nurseries, and we will develop methods to monitor sources of bacterial pollution in natural watersheds.
