Photodynamic inactivation of Lasiodiplodia theobromae: lighting the way towards an environmentally friendly phytosanitary treatment

Angela Cunha, Marina Garcia, Bruna David, Isabel Sierra-Garcia, Artur Alves & Ana Cristina Esteves
The fungus Lasiodiploda theobromae is one of the main causal agents of trunk canker and dieback of grapevine. The objective of this work was to evaluate the efficiency of photodynamic inactivation (PDI) of L. theobromae with synthetic and natural photosensitizers (PSs) and irradiation with either sunlight or artificial PAR light. Although growth of the mycelium could not be completely prevented with natural sunlight irradiation, phenothiazine dyes (methylene blue, MB; toluidine blue O, TBO), riboflavin and...
