about

The workshop held May 1991, in Athens, Greece heard papers on enrichment, conservation, and management of biological control by resident soil- and plant-associated microorganisms, and by introduced soil- and plant-associated microorganisms; strategies for greater use and commercialization of biocontrol; molecular biology and genetic improvement of biocontrol agents; and formulation, delivery, tracking, and regulation of natural and modified control agents. Ten recommendations and conclusions are summarized, the first one urging NATO countries to increase their efforts in research on biological control for the many plant diseases and plant parasitic nematodes important (and as yet, uncontrollable) in current production systems.
