I have a MSc in Plant e Microbe Biotechnology from the Universiy of Pisa. I am in charge of the CRISBA Research Center in Grosseto. I have published some scientific papers about eco-friendly solutions in the agricultural field, such as, the use of Trichoderma spp. in order to protect crops from pathogens, and the use of nitrogen controlled atmosphere to protect grain against pests.

Mycotoxins contamination and pest infestation of foods and feeds represent a pivotal threat for food safety and security worldwide, with crucial implications for human and animal health. Controlled atmosphere could be a sustainable strategy to reduce mycotoxins content and counteract the vitality of deleterious organisms in foodstuff. Ozone treatme...
In the present study, the antifungal activities of two commercial tannins-rich dry fractions towards different filamentous fungi of agronomical and food interest were evaluated. In particular, a standardized fraction from sweet chestnut ( Castanea sativa Mill.) wood by-products and a commercial green tea ( Camellia sinensis L.) leaf extract were te...
In this paper, the effect of a highly purified N2 (98.5%) controlled atmosphere-generated in situ by a membrane nitrogen sep-arator on mixed age eggs of Sitophilus oryzae and Tribolium con-fusum was evaluated. Trials were carried out in an airtight stainless silo filled with wheat, in which a nitrogen atmosphere was maintained for durations lasting...
Mycotoxigenic fungi and pests are responsible for quality losses during medium to long-term storage of grain. Since gas composition is considered one of the most important abiotic conditions that influence fungal and pest growth, the use of a controlled atmosphere with a very high N2 concentration is a valid tool to control grain quality in post-ha...
In the last decades, finding new methods to preserve the quality of wheat during post-harvest storage has become of primary importance to guarantee high-quality food products. Attacks by rodents and microorganisms, as well as humidity and high temperatures, are well-known factors affecting the qualitative and quantitative features of stored grains....

Durante lo stoccaggio molti fattori biotici e abiotici possono compromettere la qualità e la salubrità delle derrate alimentari; i cereali in particolare risultano soggetti all’attacco di insetti infestanti e di funghi micotossigeni. Il presente lavoro ha avuto l’obiettivo di testare il contenimento di tali avversità mediante l’utilizzo di un siste...
I tannini condensati ed idrolizzabili sono polimeri naturali a struttura fenolica utilizzati fin dall’antichità per la concia delle pelli ed oggi utilizzati in vari settori industriali. Considerando la scarsa letteratura disponibile sull’attività inibitoria contro i funghi filamentosi e la sempre più diffusa ricerca di nuove formulazioni a basso im...
Many biotic factors, such as mycotoxigenic fungi and pests, can affect cereals quality during storage. The use of modified atmosphere with low O2 concentration replaced by N2 is a promising tool to control mycotoxigenic fungi and pests during post-harvest. Aim of the present work is to evaluate (in a system patented by Eurosider sas) the effect of...

The ability of Trichoderma spp. to antagonize most phytopathogenic fungi and to interact with plants by inducing their resistance and promoting their growth has been widely described. Endopolygalacturonases (endoPGs) produced by Trichoderma spp. can assist root penetration and play a pre-eliciting role in induced systemic resistance (ISR), a benefi...

Several registered Trichoderma-based products are available on the market as biopesticides. In addition to biocontrol activity these fungi can stimulate plant growth, an interesting feature that can be commercially exploited to improve plants production. In the present work, the effects of Trichoderma harzianum 6776 on tomato are reported, in order...
Trichoderma gamsii 6085 is known for its features as antagonist, mycoparasite and competitor on natural substrates of mycotoxigenic Fusarium graminearum and Fusarium culmorum. This beneficial isolate is also able to significantly reduce deoxynivalenol (DON) production by these pathogens. In the present study, the ability of T. gamsii 6085 to grow i...
Trichoderma harzianum 6776 has shown a biological control activity against R. solani on radish under two different inoculation procedures. When tested on tomato seedlings, it is able to stimulate plant growth under greenhouse condition. In addition, biocontrol activity against soil-borne pathogens (Rhizoctonia solani, Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lyco...
Many Trichoderma isolates have been effectively used as biocontrol agents for a wide range of economically important plant pathogens. Besides protecting plants through antagonism, species of Trichoderma can induce resistance by colonizing, as endophytes, the root epidermis and outer cortical cells of their hosts and can also have a biostimulating e...

Can anybody provide me with a Callosobruchus maculatus lab strain or knows where i can get some of these beetles?
