Evaluation of Colletotrichum sp. and Fusarium spp. as potential biological control agents for marsh reed grass (Calamagrostis canadensis)



Evaluation of Colletotrichum sp. and Fusarium spp. as potential biological control agents for marsh reed grass (Calamagrostis canadensis)



Canadian Journal of Plant Pathology 21(1): 8-15



C. canadensis, a plant that limits conifer growth in boreal forest regeneration, was sampled in western Canada for the presence of potential fungal biocontrol agents. Of 20 isolates screened for pathogenicity, Colletotrichum sp., Fusarium spp., and Dilophospora alopecuri were pathogenic to C. canadensis. Colletotrichum isolate PFC13 caused up to 54% damage when formulated in powdered alginate and applied with a vegetable oil and surfactant combination.
