  • Patent number: 9526240
    Abstract: A sprayable liquid biodegradable formulation comprising biocontrol microorganisms imbedded in a dispersed starch-based bioplastic is effective for delivering biocontrol microorganisms and bioactive compounds to soil, crops and seeds and facilitating positioning of biocontrol agents in close proximity to target pests. After application with conventional spray equipment, water evaporates rapidly and the dispersed bioplastic formula remains, serving as a prolonged growth substrate for the biocontrol microorganisms. Application of the bioplastic dispersion formulation comprising Beauveria bassiana significantly reduced damages caused by the European Corn Borer in corn and the Tarnished Plant Bug in cotton. Applying a formulation of spores of a non-aflatoxigenic A. flavus isolate resulted in a 97% reduction of aflatoxin contamination of corn. The bioplastic dispersion formulation is effective in delivering crystal Bacillus thuringiens endotoxins to European Corn Borer larvae, causing 72% mortality.

  • Publication number: 20150143574
    Abstract: The invention relates to a new gene that is able to provide plants with resistance against pathogens, more preferably Verticillium, Ralstonia or Fusarium. Said gene is typical for Brassicaceae and encodes for a proteins having a sequence as depicted in FIG. 7 or FIG. 2A. Also provided are methods for enhancing the pathogen resistance of plants, wherein said plants preferably are Brassicaceae, but wherein the resistance also is functional in other plants. Further provided are host cells with a nucleotide construct encoding said protein.
