  • The project, focused on durum wheat, directs on reducing the use of pesticides, in particular against serious foot diseases such as Fusarium Crown Rot (FCR) and Fusarium Foot Rot (FFR). The project therefore aims to identify endophytic bacteria capable of counteracting FCR/FFR, both with a direct antagonistic effect and through microbial metabolites suitable for seed film coating. A biological control strategy will then be developed for ear treatments against Fusarium Head Blight. Endophytic bacteria isolated from different durum wheat cultivars will be isolated and identified taxonomically by partial sequencing of informative genes; we will continue with the preparation of in vitro and in vivo tests in order to evaluate the effectiveness of these microorganisms against the main pathogens of interest to reduce the impact of foot diseases in wheat and the limitation of mycotoxins present on the grains.
