I'm Lichen It! Biotic de-Stress Foliar Spray
City:Saint John , NB
School:St. Malachy's Memorial High School
Abstract:Lichen extract foliar sprays applied to lettuce germinants suppressed fungal pathogen growth (Botrytis cinerea), resulting in enhanced growth and increased biotic stress response. A combination spray (Ascophyllum nodossum seaweed and Usnea cavernosa lichen extracts) promoted enhanced biotic stress response and eliminated pathogen growth. In vitro growth inhibition of the fungal pathogen by lichen extracts of Evernia mesomorpha, Cladonia rangifernia and Usnea Cavernosa was also confirmed.
