Interactions between Cylindrocarpon and biocontrol bacteria on grapevine roots.Melanie Weckert, National Wine and Grape Industry Centre, Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga, NSW, 2650. Lay summary for NSW DPI A biocontrol bacterium (MW555) was isolated from the soil of a Wagga Wagga vineyard. It was able to inhibit the growth of the grapevine fungal pathogen (Cylindrocarpon) that causes black-foot overseas. Cylindrocarpon may also be involved in the decline of young grapevines in the Riverina. When the roots from inoculated Chardonnay potted vines were examined by scanning electron microscopy, the Cylindrocarpon spores had been parasitised by MW555.
