The study compared the absorption efficiency of dsRNA by pathogenic fungi, oomycetes and non-pathogenic fungi, and found that Botrytis cinerea, Sclerotinia, Rhizoctonia solani, Aspergillus niger and Verticillium dahlia can effectively absorb dsRNA, which is beneficial The fungus Trichoderma viride has a low absorption efficiency of dsRNA, while Colletotrichum gloeosporioides cannot absorb dsRNA. Phytophthora infestans has a low absorption efficiency of dsRNA, and the different cell types and developmental stages of pathogens also affect the absorption efficiency of dsRNA.

Recently, the Pesticide Application Technology Group of the Institute of Plant Protection of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences used imidacloprid as the target compound to study the absorption and conduction pathways of seed coating agents during the early growth and development of corn seedlings. Studies have found that although the root system’s absorption and conduction of the agent are well known, the seeds themselves contribute more to the absorption and conduction of the seed coating agent during the early growth and development of maize seedlings. Related research results were recently published in the internationally renowned academic journal Pest Management Science (Doi 10.1002/ps.5930).
