There are 2 overlying goals of our research.1) To discover mechanisms of disease control, both chemical and biological, to reduce crop losses associated with fungal pathogens. We hope to increase our understanding of the role that Bacillus spp., as well as other indigenous populations found in the raw materials and substrate, play in affecting varying levels of substrate (crop) disease susceptibility.2) To improve on production and yield consistency of morel cultivation so that diversified and specialty growers can expand their production opportunities. Results of this long-term project will help both large and small mushroom growers survive and be profitable.
