Biological Control of Plant Pathogens and Diseases – Allelochemicals, Volume 2 by Nderjit and K.G. Mukerji :: Biological control of plant diseases and plant pathogens is of great significance in forestry and agriculture. There is great incentive to discover biologically active natural products from higher plants that are better than synthetic agrochemicals and are much safer, from health and environmental considerations. The development of natural products as herbicides, fungicides, and their role in biological control of plant disease promises to reduce environmental and health hazards. Allelopathic techniques offer real promise in solving several problems linked with biological control of plant pests.
The allelopathic effect of plants on microorganisms, and microorganisms on microorganisms is of great environmental and economic significance. This book is organized around the premise that allelochemicals can be employed for biological control of plant pathogens and plant diseases. Specifically, this volume focuses on (i) discovery and development of natural product based fungicides for agriculture, (ii) direct use of allelochemicals as well as indirect effects through cover crops and organic amendments for plant parasitic pest control and (iii) application of allelopathy in the pest management.
