Fertilization and disease control via soil bacteria?

Fertilization and disease control via soil bacteria?

Bacteria that can improve maize growth under cold temperatures and bacteria that can limit the effects of a fungal infection with Rhizoctonia solani were discovered

Research projects

Antibiotic residues, antibiotic resistant bacteria and antibiotic resistance genes in manure, soil and plants and the potential exposure of humans

We analyze the samples to quantify the antibiotic residues, to investigate the (antibiotic-resistant) bacterial shifts (via both outplacement and 16S metabarcoding) and to quantify antibiotic resistance genes (via both qPCR and whole plasmidome sequencing).

ILVO is currently working on a remarkable new control method against the Xanthomonas bacterial disease in Brussels sprout and cabbage. Bacteriophages (that is, viruses that eat bacteria) are introduced that target very specific pathogenic plant bacteria in these crops.
