Chestnut blight Cryphonectria parasitica (Murr.) Barr and its biological control in Hungary



Chestnut blight Cryphonectria parasitica (Murr.) Barr and its biological control in Hungary



Acta Phytopathologica et Entomologica Hungarica 33(1/2): 131-145



A study into the use of hypovirulent strains of chestnut blight (C. parasitica) as a biological control agent was carried out. A total of 36 strains of C. parasitica, obtained from 19 Castanea sativa stands, in south- and west-Hungary, were examined for laccase activity, virulence, classification of vegetative compatibility groups (VCGs) and for the presence of hypovirulence associated dsRNA. In the areas tested 13 VCGs were found.
