|Project Title||Study on the Use of Imported Biological Agents (BCAs) Against Anthurium Blight Disease Caused by Xanthomonas campestris pv. Dieffenbachiae (Xcd) Under Greenhouse Conditions|
|Project Type||Contained Use|
|Name of Institution||Dole Phils.|
|Cooperating Institution||University of Hawaii at Manoa|
|Supervising IBC||Stanfilco- Dole Phil. Inc- IBC|
|Project Leader(s)||Thang Manh Hoang|
|Experimental Facility/Site||Philippines (Dole Tropifresh Green house, Polomolok, South Cotabato)|
|Purpose / Objectives||To evaluate the effectiveness of mixture of 4 non- pathogenic bacteria against anthurium blight disease under green house conditions.|
|Biosafety measures||1. Containment provisions for field release of organism.
2. All drainage canals within the greenhouse will be daily sprayed with chlorine to prevent the organisms from going together with irrigation water.
3. Monitoring of the dispersal of BCAs.
