USGA Summary Points:Isolated 1200 and identified a subset of 229 bermudagrass endophytes from roots. Screened 225 endophytes for antifungal activity against O. herpotricha. The number of endophytic isolates was reduced in infected bermudagrass roots compared to non-infected roots. Resistant bermudagrass did not contain greater numbers of antifungal isolates compared to susceptible bermudagrasses. Discovered an additional 16 very potent antifungal endophytes. Developed an agar-based tube biotization and infection system for screening of biocontrol potential under controlled environmental conditions. Application of biocontrol agent AF1 to the field did not reduce disease symptoms in the following year. In vitro screen used to identify SDS-resistant types within seed populations.
