From laboratory to the field: Biological control of Fusarium graminearum on infected maize crop residues

Aim of this study is to evaluate biological control agents (BCAs) against Fusarium graminearum on infected maize stalks as a means to reduce Fusarium head blight (FHB) in subsequently grown wheat. The findings support the application of C. rosea against F. graminearum on residues of maize to suppress the primary inoculum of FHB. SIGNIFICANCE AND IMPACT OF THE STUDY:As sustainable agriculture requires solutions to control FHB, hence, the application of C. rosea during the mulching of maize crop residues should be evaluated in on-farm experiments.
