Jørgensen, Hans Jørgen Lyngs; Bengtsson, Marianne; Wulff, Ednar and Hockenhull, John (2004) Control of apple scab by the use of the plants own defence mechanisms. Newsletter from Danish Research Centre for Organic Farming (2).
One obvious possibility to control apple scab, caused by Venturia inaequalis, is to use the plant's inherent ability to defend itself by induced resistance. Preliminary experiments with induced resistance have been started in StopScab, a collaborative project between KVL and DIAS. The concept and use of induced resistance are brielfy described in the following.
