Will hypovirulent strains of the anthracnose pathogen slow the disease?

Hypovirulent (weakened) strains of the chestnut blight pathogen cause a less severe reaction in their woody hosts than do the normal virulent strains. Research into possible hypovirulence in D. destructiva may uncover a biocontrol for this disease (Daughtrey and others 1996).
