I am interested in collecting crop-specific fungal plant pathogens important for Southern Virginia. My goal is to screen these pathogens against our bacterial endophyte library to identify beneficial bacteria which can either inhibit diseases or reduce the impact of fungal pathogens and promote plant growth and yield. Potential endophytes resulting from preliminary laboratory tests will be taken to greenhouse and field trials. Utilizing beneficial endophytes could lead to more sustainable agricultural systems with reduced use of pesticides and other inputs.
