Biological control of fire blight on fruit trees



Biological control of fire blight on fruit trees



Parasitica 52(4): 163-175



Possibilities of controlling fire blight (Erwinia amylovora) by biological methods, e.g. using various strains of living antagonistic bacteria, such as E. herbicola and Pseudomonas fluorescens, and application of antibacterial substances with a high specificity towards E. amylovora, e.g. bacteriocins, which are currently being investigated in Belgium, are discussed.
