Dr. Dionisio Alvindia
RESEARCH

Development of non-chemical strategies for postharvest disease management of tropical fruits with emphasis on banana and mango. Approaches being used include integration of native biocontrol agents with generally regarded as safe (GRAS) compounds, food additives, hot water treatment, and improvement of cultural practices. The mechanism of these approaches to postharvest pathogens is of particular interest. Studies on mycobiota of coffee and cacao. I have extension responsibility to the end users (farmers and consumers) of the generated technologies.

AREA OF RESPONSIBILITY
As a plant pathologist; research on postharvest diseases of tropical fruits (banana and mango); and development of integrated postharvest disease management programs for tropical fruits. Extension responsibilities include education programs on diseases of tropical fruits. As a mycologist; identification and characterization of fungi. As an affiliate professor, Central Luzon State University (CLSU), Science City of Muñoz, Nueva Ecija, with “on call” teaching responsibility on courses on Plant Disease Management (CP 704), Disease Resistance in Plant (CP 735), and Advance Microbiology (MB 741).
