Final Report - 2E-BCAS IN CROPS (Enhancement and Exploitation of Soil Biocontrol Agents for Bio-Constraint Management in Crops)

Project ID: 1687
Funded under: FP6-FOOD


This is the final report of the 2E-BCAS IN CROPS project. Funded under the European Community's Sixth Framework Programme, 2E-BCAS IN CROPS aimed to improve the efficacy of some of the already available or the most promising biocontrol microorganisms in vegetable crops, particularly cabbage, tomato, carrots and lettuce, for the biological control of some diseases or some parasitic and perennial weeds.

The report outlines genetic and physiological enhancement strategies. It also describes the ecological fitness of the agents, their production, formulation and application and their integration with other organisms and control methods. Finally, the effectiveness of fungal biocontrol agents is assessed as important new tools for supporting the production of safer and healthier foods.
