Antifungal RNA Spray Could Help Fight Barley Crop Disease (image) PLOS Share Print E-Mail Caption Do double stranded (ds)RNAs represent a new generation of environmentally-friendly fungicides? The figure shows accumulation of fluorescent-labelled dsRNA in the plant vascular system after spraying barley leaves with CYP3-dsRNAA488 that inhibits plant infection with Fusarium fungi.
