Biological Control of Fusarium Diseases of Conifer Seedlings

An alternative to soil fumigation with methyl bromide is needed for control of Fusariurn root rot and damping-off of conifer seedlings. Studies with eastern white pine (Pinus strobus, L.) and red pine (P. resinosa, Ait.) are underway to develop biological control microorganisms for application to conifer seed. Preliminary results show an ectomycorrhizal fungus, as well as bacteria derived from the rhizosphere, suppress Fusariurn root rot of eastern white pine.
