Biological control of postharvest diseases of peaches and nectarines by yeasts

Biological control of postharvest diseases of peaches and nectarines by yeasts

Journal of Phytopathology 151(3): 130-134

Biocontrol activities of a total of 103 yeast isolates were tested against postharvest diseases of peaches. Seven isolates, with the best efficacy in reducing the number of infected wounds or lesion sizes of Penicillium expansum and Botrytis cinerea, were selected for further large-scale experiments.
