Plant disease resistance Wikipedia

Plant disease resistance protects plants from pathogens in two ways: by pre-formed structures and chemicals, and by infection-induced responses of the immune system. Relative to a susceptible plant, disease resistance is the reduction of pathogen growth on or in the plant (and hence a reduction of disease), while the term disease tolerance describes plants that exhibit little disease damage

Jun 18, 2020 Indole-3-Acetic Acid (IAA) is one of the most important and physiologically active phytohormones [1, 2].It is a secondary metabolite of L-tryptophan that acts as a regulator of many biological processes for plant development while acting on organogenesis, trophic responses, and cellular responses such as cell expansion, division, differentiation, and regulation of genes [3, 4].

Plants Free Full-Text Eco-Physiological Screening of

High temperatures represent a limitation for growth and development of many crop species. Several studies have demonstrated that the yield reduction of tomato under high temperatures and drought is mainly due to a photosynthetic decline. In this paper, a set of 15 tomato genotypes were screened for tolerance to elevated temperatures by cultivating plants under plastic walk-in tunnels.

Drought and heat stress tolerance screening in wheat using

Feb 13, 2020 Improving abiotic stress tolerance in wheat requires large scale screening of yield components such as seed weight, seed number and single seed weight, all of which is very laborious, and a detailed analysis of seed morphology is time-consuming and visually often impossible. Computed tomography offers the opportunity for much faster and more accurate assessment of yield components.

Frontiers Phenotyping Plant Responses to Biotic Stress

Photosynthesis is a pivotal process in plant physiology, and its regulation plays an important role in plant defense against biotic stress. Interactions with pathogens and pests often cause alterations in the metabolism of sugars and sink/source relationships. These changes can be part of the plant defense mechanisms to limit nutrient availability to the pathogens.

Abscisic Acid and Abiotic Stress Signaling

Mar 16, 2007 Plant responses to abiotic stress can be determined by the severity of the stress and by the metabolic status of the plant. Abscisic acid (ABA) is a phytohormone critical for plant growth and development and plays an important role in integrating various stress signals and controlling downstream stress responses. Plants have to adjust ABA
