Abstract

In 2004-2005, application of non-amended suspensions of Aureobasidium pullulans conidia to post-harvest chickpea debris resulted in 37.9 fewer Ascochyta blight lesions on chickpea test plants relative to controls. Analogous tests in 2006-2007 resulted in 38.4 fewer lesions. Ascospores released from debris were predominantly Davidiella sp. (anamorph, Cladosporium sp.), followed by Didymella rabiei (anamorph, Ascochyta rabiei, agent of Ascochyta blight). ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR
