New concepts in disease control and epidemiology are being incorporated in current research projects on diseases of cotton, including: - Biological soil disinfestation - Fumigation of soil using nitrogen fertiliser with nitrification inhibitors - Novel agents for induction of systemic acquired resistance, including nitric oxide and silicon compounds - Role of matric potential on reproduction of F. oxysporum f. sp. vasinfoctum on crop residues Established new links and strengthened existing links with plant pathologists in the Ministry of Agriculture in Israel, at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, at the University of Anzoria, at the University of Arkansas, at the University of Sydney, at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney. Information on factors that may influence biological control of Fusarium wilt with non-pathogenic strains of Fusarium oxysporum communicated to Honours Student Christina Bakker at the University of Queensland.
