Ganoderma root disease of lowland tea (Camellia sinensis) in Malaysia: some aspects of its biology and control


, : Ganoderma root disease of lowland tea (Camellia sinensis) in Malaysia: some aspects of its biology and control. Malaysian Agricultural Research 2(2): 31-37

A Ganoderma sp. spreading root disease in lowland tea was closely related to G. pseudoferreum isolated from rubber and distinctly different from Ganoderma sp. on oil palm. The disease spreads in the field from scattered patches. Inactivation of inoculum sources in the patches was attempted in preliminary field trials by the integrated use of mulching, fumigation and fertilizer. Fumigation by methyl bromide gave the most promising results.

Epigenetic processes, such as histone acetylation, are critical regulators of learning and memory processes. In the present study, we investigated whether training in either a spatial or a cued water maze task undergoes selective changes of histon...
