Use of purified Epichloë festucae antifungal protein for dollar spot control on turfgrass
­ ​ ​ Invention Summary: The dollar spot disease is a major challenge for turfgrass fields, especially golf courses. The commonly used solution to control this disease is fungicides, which can be hazardous and limited in effectiveness; thus, the need for an alternative solution is imminent. Rutgers researchers in the department of...

Microbiome-Leveraged Organic Herbicide
Invention Summary: At present, all herbicides are deleterious to human health. There is an unmet need to develop herbicides that are not harmful to people. Ethylene is a microbe-produced hormone that stimulates plant cell growth. However, in excess, ethylene causes stress in plants due to overproduction of superoxide, a highly potent form of reactive...

New Class of Biofertilizer Promoting Growth and Stress Tolerance
Invention Summary: Rutgers scientists have identified ACC-deaminase-producing bacterial strains that have advantageous effects on overall plant growth, in particular, turfgrass. Plants infected with ACC-deaminase-producing bacteria are exposed to less ethylene, and thus exhibit better overall growth. Indeed, plants inoculated with these bacteria...
