    Clonostachys rosea (teleomorph Bionectria ochrouleuca) is a powerful biological control agent (BCA), and has been categorized as a broad-spectrum agent against several phytopathogens affecting different crops and forest species. One possible way by which C. rosea can reduce the disease incidence is the Induced Systemic Resistance (ISR), an event associated to several biochemical changes conditioning plants to resist the attack of pathogens. Several studies have found that C. rosea induces resistance against pathogens in legumes, cereals and other crops, but there is a lack of information about the situation in forest species. Therefore, the main goal of this study was to evaluate the behavior of different C. rosea strains as inductors of resistance against the pathogen Fusarium circinatum Niremberg and O`Donnell in two contrasting genotypes of Pinus radiata D. Don. Ten C. rosea strain.. View More»
