Integrated control of willow rust in renewable energy plantations in the UK



Integrated control of willow rust in renewable energy plantations in the UK



Pesticide Outlook 11(4): 145-148



The potential threat of rust (Melampsora epitea and M. capraearum) on short rotation coppice willow (Salix spp.) is likely to increase as more and more willow plantings are established. Integrated control of willow rust involves the breeding for resistant clones, planting host genotype mixtures and deployment of biological control agents.
