1 Use of Trichoderma, Pseudomonas and Bacillus spp. in IPM Programs
Barry J. Jacobsen Dept. of Plant Sciences and Plant Pathology Montana State University ESA, 2012

2 Typically used as seed, tuber,
rhizome, root stock, and soil treatments Widely used in IPM CRSP activities in South Asia

3 Many products in both developed
and developing world

4 Widespread acceptance by farmers after comparison to
farmer practices that include pesticides- increase yield, quality, earlier harvest, profitability-100s of trials

5 Mechanisms for Biological Control of Plant Pathogens
Antibiosis-Biological Control Agent (BCA) produces antibiotic substance that suppresses pathogen. Pseudomonas, Bacillus, Trichoderma Competition for nutrients-BCA competes for resource in short supply that pathogen needs. e.g. Fe+++ , sugars and other needed for spore germination or growth. Pseudomonas Niche occupation-BCA occupies infection niche Predation Parasitism. Trichoderma, Bacillus penetrans-nematode Alter plant physiology (transpiration, water relations, growth hormones, nutrient uptake, N fixation) Induced resistance. Pseudomonas, Bacillus, Trichoderma MOST BCAs HAVE MULTIPLE MECHANISMS

6 Rhizosphere PGPR-Plant growth promoting rhizobacteria and Trichoderma colonize Rhizosphere/endosphere Pseudomondas Enterobacter Bacillus Azospirillum Many others

7 Colonize rhizosphere occupy infection courts Tie up critical nutrients needed by pathogens, produce growth promoting substances Rhizosphere colonist produce antibiotics,etc Antagonistic to pathogens Induce plant defense genes systemically

8 Many PGPR are endophytes
Colonization (CFU/g ) of sugarbeet by from treated seed 15C=1.13 e5 24C=7.59e 5 7.1 e5 1.3 e5 2.1 e5 1.5 e5 2.1 e5 5.4 e5 Many PGPR are endophytes

9 Growth promotion by PGPR
Control of root pathogens, growth regulators, improved nutrition, induced resistance?



12 Healthy seedling protected by PGPR
Trichoderma Damping-off Mixing Trichoderma product in potting medium Planting Trichoderma/PGPR colonized seedlings

13 Begonias were grown in the greenhouse and inoculated with Botrytis cinerea
under conditions optimal for the development of disease. Treatments left to right : untreated (Un), CaCl2, chlorothalonil (Fung), and the biocontrol agent Trichoderma hamatum T382 inoculated into the potting mix (T382). Hoitink, et al

14 Competition for nutrients
Many rhizosphere colonizing Pseudomonads (PGPR), Serratia, Erwinia (Pantoea) provide disease suppression by competition for Fe+++ with pathogens via chelation by siderophores (pyroverdin, pseudobactin, pyochelin). Fusarium wilts of flax, carnation, Take-all, Thielaviopsis, Rhizoctonia, Sclerotium rolfsii, Erwinia carotovora, several patch diseases of turf, dollar spot of turf(Sclerotinia), melting out of turf (Drechslera-Bipolaris), DRBs, Deliterious rhizobacteria that produce HCN, - may also be SAR/ISR signaling agents Fireblight- Pantoea agglomerans competes for nutrients and niche with Erwinia amylovora, Pseudomonas fluorescens A 506(Blight Ban)- Fe+++ allows production of antibiotic antagonistic against E. amylovora that allows competition for site-this is used commercially PGPR competes for nutrients (root exudates) with slower growing pathogens-fungistasis, chlamydospores, macroconidia, oospores

15 Altered physiology Trichoderma harzianum/viridae-improve water and nutrient uptake- many references Bacillus subtilis (Kodiak, other), Bacillus- pumillus GB 34 (YieldShield), Azospirillum, Pseudomonas Auxins- Asghar,2002, Idris 2007 Gibberelins-Joo, Cytokinins-Garcia de Salmone, 2001, Castro, 2008, Dobbelaere, P uptake-Ramirez and Kloepper, 2010 (phytase activity) Improved N utilization-Shoebitz nitrogenase and IAA improved water relations

16 Phyllosphere/Phylloplane Biological Control
Environment for BCA in this environment is relatively hostile compared to rhizosphere / endosphere. Physical environment: great flux in moisture, relative humidity, UV/IR radiation, paucity of nutrients that change with leaf age and time Biological environment: competition with phylloplane colonists and invaders, plant responses and exudates vary with physiological age, genetics, etc Majority of products are oriented to greenhouse or controlled storage situations where environment is more stabile. Even here BCA performance has greater variability than chemicals Vast majority of research has focused on Botrytis, powdery mildew and fruit storage molds. Significant markets-high value of vegetables, ornamentals and fruit Fewer registered pesticides-fungicide resistance problems Lower costs to register BCAs in many countries BCAs considered more acceptable to greenhouse workers (reentry periods) and to consumers

17 Pseudomonas syringae ESC 10/11
antibiosis and niche occupation

18 Induced Resistance=SAR,SIR and ISR Common mechanism for Pseudomonas, Bacillus, Trichoderma
SAR-Systemic Acquired Resistance-SIR-Systemic Induced Resistance Activation of master switch via salicyclic acid pathway signal –Classical PR-Proteins-Chitinases, β glucanases, proteinases, etc ISR-Induced Systemic Resistance Activation via jasmonic acid/ ethylene pathway -no classic PR-proteins but the defense compounds Usually associated with PGPR(plant growth promoting rhizobacteria( Pseudomonas sp.)-insects Induced Resistance now we know that many biological inducers induce via salicylic acid, NPR-1 gene, jasmonic acid, ethylene or combination of these pathways

19 Induced resistance Seed Treatments: Pseudomonas, Bacillus, Trichoderma-root diseases caused by fungi, nematodes-foliar diseases caused by bacteria, fungi, viruses Foliar treatments: Bacillus mycoides-foliar diseases caused by bacteria, fungi, viruses-Root diseases caused by Pythium

20 PGPR induced resistance is a state of enhanced defensive capacity
developed by a plant reacting to specific biotic or chemical stimuli Stimulus from PGPR/Trichoderma Stimulus Stimulus Stimulus

21 PGPR induced resistance is a state of enhanced defensive capacity
developed by a plant reacting to specific biotic or chemical stimuli potentiated induction of stress-related genes enhanced resistance

22 SAR/ISR-Foliar Induction
Protective effects of SAR extend to all plant parts Resistance is detectable 2-3 days post induction Peaks 5-7 days post induction Effective for ~14-20 days or longer Suppresses many pathogens: fungi, bacteria, viruses Point of induction Mention my work of the control of Pythium ultimum on sugar beets by foliar application of BmJ

23 Trichoderma harzianum/viridae
Fungal Parasite Antibiotic producer Improved water and nutrient uptake Induced Systemic Resistance Inducer

24 Trichoderma viridae and antibiotic deficient mutants
Trichoderma antibiotic deficient mutants still retain biocontrol activity

25 Mycoparasitism deficent mutant
Trichoderma mycoparasitism deficient mutants still produce biocontrol

26 Mycoparasitism and ISR
Phase 1: high MW Antibiotics host CWDEs Trichoderma receptors? Phase 2: low MW Antibiotics host Trichoderma CWDEs The pre-contact events of mycoparasitim may also activate ISR in the plant Cell wall degrading enzymes Lorito

27 PGPR- Viruses 1996- Raupach et al. Two strains of PGPR induce ISR in cucumber and tomato against CMV Some strains of Pseudomonas fluorescens, Bacillus pumilis, B. amyloliquefaciens, B subtilis, Kluyvera cryocrescens rhizobacteria reduced CMV and Tomato Mottle geminivirus infection (50-70%), reduced symptoms and lengthened period from infection to symptom development-Zehender et al, 1999 Bacillus globisporus, Pseudomonas fluorescens, Streptomyces gibsonii-30-60% reduction of tobacco necrosis virus local lesions in bean. Shoman, et al 2003 Pseudomonas fluorescens- Barley Yellow Dwarf Mosaic- Mysus avenae-Wheat and Barley~50% reduced disease severity. Al Ani et al.2011

33 How does induced resistance reduce virus
Direct effect on insect vector-JA? Love, et al., 2007 showed salicylic acid pathway involved in delayed symptoms and severity and alternative oxidase. Ethylene/Jasmonic acid deficient mutants implicate ISR in reduced long distance spread in plant . Lewsey et al., 2009 showed RNA silencing and salicylic acid mediated defense to restrict virus replication and movement. Jasmonic acid may have direct effect on aphid vector. Data using salicylic acid, Acibenzolar-s-methyl-(Actigard,Bion)/ CMV TMV in tobacco, squash, Arabidopsis show reduced virus movement-cell to cell (delay symptom development) and systemic movement. IR involves mitochondrial enzyme alternate oxidase and RNA dependent RNA polymerase. Mayers, et al 2005 : Madhusudham, et al., 2008

34 Conclusion IR shown to delay symptom onset and reduce infection, disease severity, virus titer, virus movement or symptom severity for a wide range of viruses .. Control levels are generally in the range of 30-80% and that the mode of action or efficacy differs remarkably by biological control agent and plant species. May have direct effect on aphid vectors
