GANODERMA DETECTION AND CONTROL (GDC) GROUP

The group is responsible for conducting research and advisory services related to Ganoderma disease, including:

  1. Studies on early detection of Ganoderma using molecular methods, proteins, bio-sensors and remote sensing
  2. Development of integrated airborne hyperspectral and 3D tomography remote sensing technology for detection of Ganoderma disease in oil palm
  3. Studies on biological control of Ganoderma
  4. Development of Trichoderma as biofungicide for Ganoderma basal stem rot infection in field
  5. Screening of oil palm materials resistance to Ganoderma
  6. Development of organic fertilizer with beneficial elements for Ganoderma control
