NEW RESEARCH: Integrated Management of Pathogens and Microbes in Cannabis sativa L. (Cannabis) under Greenhouse Conditions

🔍 Key Takeaways:

  • Pre-emptive Measures are Crucial: Selecting disease-tolerant genotypes and implementing stringent sanitation practices are foundational in reducing pathogen incidents.

  • Innovative Control Methods: The study highlights the success of biological control agents, reduced-risk products, and adjustments in cultural and environmental conditions in suppressing major threats like B. cinerea bud rot, powdery mildew, and several root diseases.

  • Exploring New Frontiers: Exciting alternatives such as the use of endophytes, tissue culture, nutrient supplementation, and tech-aided scouting are opening new paths for enhancing plant health.

  • The Call for Continued Research: There's a pressing need for further studies on plant defense responses and the effectiveness of biological control agents, underscoring the ever-evolving nature of IDM in cannabis cultivation.

🌱 A Sustainable Future Ahead: This study underscores the importance of support from governmental regulatory agencies to adopt these sustainable strategies, ensuring they align with jurisdictional standards. Flexibility in registering new disease management products is deemed essential for the industry to adapt and thrive amidst ongoing challenges posed by plant pathogens.
