PHYLLOSPHERE MICROCLIMATE WITH MICROPCMS TO IMPROVE MYCOHERBICIDES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1999 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Dr David Colvin , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $225,000.00
Abstract:
Not Available This program would further investigate the use of microencapsulated water and PCM materials to regulate the phyllosphere microclimate on plants for mycoherbicides (biological herbicides). The targeted mycoherbicide will be Colletotrichum malvarum on prickly sida (Sida spinosa). Phase I… More
