Transcript of "Control of Disease in Plants"

  1. 1. Control of Disease b.stev
  2. 2. MOSTLY to small to be visible with the EYE : it is MICROBES that damage plants
  3. 3. 4.Tumors- infection overstimulates growth & the multiplication of cells form an abnormally structured growth BACTERIA disease has 4 characteristic identities : 1.Vascular WILT- infection causes blockage to the plants H 2 O & nutrient/s 2.N ECROSIS – toxin is secreted - growth canker - leaf spots - stem blight 3.Soft ROT – enzyme/s degrade cell wall, common in fleshy vegetables: soft & watery
  4. 4. HOW infection OCCURS: <ul><li>ENTERS through a WOUND </li></ul><ul><li>Weather </li></ul><ul><li>Nectar glands </li></ul><ul><li>Humans </li></ul><ul><li>Machinery </li></ul><ul><li>Insects </li></ul><ul><li>Leaf scars </li></ul><ul><li>Tools </li></ul>LAB analysis: can identify the specific PATHOGEN
  5. 5. the SPREAD of disease : ALSO – grafting pruning cultivation transportation wind / rain / dust / insects/ mites (Encyclopedia Britannica, 2008)
  6. 6. <ul><li>Seed treatment with hot water 50 o C </li></ul><ul><li>Rotation of crops </li></ul><ul><li>Exclude prone growth if necessary </li></ul><ul><li>Use resistant varieties </li></ul><ul><li>Protective spray/ paint/ drench </li></ul><ul><li>Bio-fungicide use before implantation </li></ul><ul><li>remove & destroy WEED/s </li></ul><ul><li>STERILISE tools (pruning/grafting) </li></ul>CONTROL is DIFFICULT (Encyclopedia Britannica, 2008)
  7. 7. <ul><li>DON’T overcrowd plants </li></ul><ul><li>avoid tissue damage </li></ul><ul><li>KEEP clean grow space </li></ul><ul><li>screen out insects </li></ul><ul><li>AVOID foreign soil use </li></ul><ul><li>refrain working in moist soil </li></ul><ul><li>DON’T graze crops </li></ul>(Growing Edge Magazine, 2006)
