Summary To develop a potential preservative from microorganisms, Aureobasidium pullulans was the positive candidates. In a laboratory scale, we introduced the Aureobasidium pullulans broth into a practical delivery chain to simulate the commercial process. For disease severitybanana degreening, the results indicated we could obtain a better consistencylonger storage time for exports as well.
Scientific Breakthrough Thanks to BCRC (Bioresource CollectionResearch Center), the Aureobasidium pullulans, exhibited over 50 inhibition to the Anthracnose. For mangobanana, the corresponding disease severity was lowered by 70 with the cell broths. Therefore, it is rather promising for development of natural biological agents instead of chemical preservativesalso presented a multi-effect performance.
Industrial Applicability Aureobasidium pullulans could inhibit the occurrence of fruit pathogen therefore, it is worthwhile to be used as a natural preservative. In environments, it provided a very friendly situation for agricultural cultivation without harmful emissions. In particular, the introduction of Aureobasidium pullulans could easily combine with the current operation practiceexpand the export capacity.
