    Although the plant microbiome is crucial for plant health, little is known about the significance of the seed microbiome. Here, we studied indigenous bacterial communities associated with the seeds in different cultivars of oilseed rape and their interactions with symbiotic and pathogenic microorganisms.
    We found a high bacterial diversity expressed by tight bacterial co-occurrence networks within the rape seed microbiome, as identified by llumina MiSeq amplicon sequencing. In total, 8362 operational taxonomic units (OTUs) of 40 bacterial phyla with a predominance of Proteobacteria (56%) were found. The three cultivars that were analyzed shared only one third of the OTUs. The shared core of OTUs consisted mainly of Alphaproteobacteria (33%). Each cultivar was characterized by having its own unique bacterial structure, diversity, and proportion of unique microorganisms (25%). The cultivar with the lowest bacterial abundance, diversity, and the highest predicted bacterial metabolic activity rate contained the highest abundance of potential pathogens within the seed. This data corresponded with the observation that seedlings belonging to this cultivar responded more strongly to the seed treatments with bacterial inoculants than other cultivars. Cultivars containing higher indigenous diversity were characterized as having a higher colonization resistance against beneficial and pathogenic microorganisms. Our results were confirmed by microscopic images of the seed microbiota.
    The structure of the seed microbiome is an important factor in the development of colonization resistance against pathogens. It also has a strong influence on the response of seedlings to biological seed treatments. These novel insights into seed microbiome structure will enable the development of next generation strategies combining both biocontrol and breeding approaches to address world agricultural challenges.

    Black spots caused by Rhexocercosporidium carotae on cold stored carrots in Sweden

    Black spots on carrots are a major problem in cold stored carrots leading to significant postharvest losses. Black spot symptoms can be caused by different pathogens. In Sweden, Rhexocercosporidium carotae (syn. Acrothecium carotae) was identified as the most important storage pathogen of carrots.

    The aim of the EU-financed research project „STOVE“ (Seed Treatments for Organic Vegetable Production) is to evaluate different methods potentially suited for seed treatment of vegetables in organic farming regarding their efficacy, to optimise these methods, and where feasible to combine them with each other. Scientists from seven European research institutions and a producer of organic vegetable seeds carry out the project.

    Posterpresentation: The EU-project "Seed Treatments for Organic Seed Production" (QLK5-2002-02239 STOVE) was initiated in March 2003. The project aim is to evaluate non-chemical methods for control of seed-borne pathogens in organic vegetable production. Both fysical and biological methods are being investigated. The former include hot air, hot water and electron treatment, while the latter compromise formulated commercialised microbial preparations, resistance inducers, non-commercialised antagonistic micro-organisms and plant extracts/compounds of natural origin.
