Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Horticulture

Jaacov Katan mainly investigates Agronomy, Fusarium oxysporum, Botany, Fusarium wilt and Soil solarization. His Agronomy study combines topics in areas such as Soil water and Melon. Fusarium oxysporum is a subfield of Horticulture that he tackles.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Colonization and Root microbiome. As part of his studies on Botany, Jaacov Katan often connects relevant subjects like Inoculation. His Soil solarization study incorporates themes from Crop rotation, Crop, Fruit tree, Cultural methods and Orchard.

His most cited work include:

  • Solar Heating (Solarization) of Soil for Control of Soilborne Pests (362 citations)
  • Trichoderma harzianum: A biocontrol agent effective against Sclerotium rolfsii and Rhizoctonia solani. (295 citations)
  • Solar Heating by Polyethylene Mulching for the Control of Diseases Caused by Soil-Borne Pathogens (282 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Agronomy, Horticulture, Soil solarization, Botany and Fusarium oxysporum. His Agronomy study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Soil water. The various areas that Jaacov Katan examines in his Soil water study include Environmental chemistry and Pesticide.

His studies examine the connections between Soil solarization and genetics, as well as such issues in Agroforestry, with regards to Agriculture and Ecology. His work in Fusarium oxysporum addresses issues such as Root rot, which are connected to fields such as Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. radicis-lycopersici. His study looks at the relationship between Mulch and fields such as Polyethylene, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Agronomy (38.61%)
  • Horticulture (25.87%)
  • Soil solarization (24.32%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2019)?

  • Agronomy (38.61%)
  • Soil solarization (24.32%)
  • Horticulture (25.87%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of study are Agronomy, Soil solarization, Horticulture, Fusarium and Fusarium oxysporum. His Agronomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Soil water and Fusarium wilt. His studies deal with areas such as Agroforestry, Integrated pest management, Section, Invasive species and Pest control as well as Soil solarization.

Jaacov Katan studied Horticulture and Plant disease resistance that intersect with Race and Pathogenicity. In Fusarium, he works on issues like Root rot, which are connected to Crown, Crop yield and Dazomet. His Fusarium oxysporum research includes elements of Inoculation, Compost, Diplotaxis tenuifolia, Manure and Fish emulsion.

Between 2008 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Soil Suppressiveness to Fusarium Disease Following Organic Amendments and Solarization. (67 citations)
  • Soil Suppressiveness to Fusarium Disease: Shifts in Root Microbiome Associated with Reduction of Pathogen Root Colonization (59 citations)
  • Induced resistance as a putative component of compost suppressiveness (56 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Agriculture

His primary scientific interests are in Agronomy, Soil solarization, Fusarium oxysporum, Horticulture and Fusarium. His Agronomy research integrates issues from Agriculture, Soil water and Methyl isothiocyanate. His research on Soil solarization also deals with topics like

  • Sowing and Crop residue most often made with reference to Crop,
  • Rhizosphere that intertwine with fields like Salicylic acid, Botany, Resistance and Powdery mildew.

His Fusarium oxysporum research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Compost and Manure. In the subject of general Horticulture, his work in Solarisation and Inoculation is often linked to Meloidogyne javanica, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His Solarisation research incorporates elements of Rhizoctonia solani, Herbaceous plant and Macrophomina phaseolina.
