Resumen

BARON, Noemi Carla; RIGOBELO, Everlon Cid  y  ZIED, Diego Cunha. Filamentous fungi in biological control: current status and future perspectives. Chil. j. agric. res. [online]. 2019, vol.79, n.2, pp.307-315. ISSN 0718-5839.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-58392019000200307.

Agriculture is the largest economic sector in the world. The awareness of the current environmental degradation caused by conventional farming practices has allowed the use of entomopathogenic fungi as a biological control technique to become increasingly widespread. Several studies from the laboratory bench to field trials show that fungi can be directly applied or, more recently, can be carried to the target by other biological vectors (i.e., insects), which increases their potential for dispersal and transmission. In addition, studies on the development of formulations have intensified, with the aim to enable their commercialization and reduce costs for the more sustainable management of crops. This review discusses the positive aspects of the use of filamentous fungi in the biological control of pests, specifically in terms of the use of antagonistic fungal plant pathogens and nematophagous fungi.

Palabras clave : Biological control; environmental degradation; filamentous fungi; sustainable agriculture.
