The use of microorganisms as bio- logical agents for the control of plant diseases.nematodes. insects. and weeds has advanced considerably in recent years. Research in this area now encompasses the discovery of new pathogens. studies on the formulation of viable products effective in the field. the ecology and epidemiology of plant pathogenic fungi. and consideration of the host-parasite interactions of biocontrol agents at the organismic level. Microbial Control of weeds presents a clear and accurate overview of the most current information in this new field. It covers the progress in biological control of weeds with plant pathogens. the difficulties and constraints in using them. the possibilities for genetic engineering or manipulation of plant pathogenic bacteria and fungi. and the prospects for commercialization and economic use. Contributors include researchers with extensive experience and publications in their respective areas. The book should be an essential reference for all research scientists and graduate students in plant pathology. as well as for those in weed and crop science. microbial ecology. and mycology.
