Soil salinity is one of the most severe factors limiting growth and physiological response in Vigna sinensis plants. Plant salt stress tolerance requires the activation of complex metabolic activities including antioxidative pathways, especially reactive oxygen species and scavenging systems within the cells which can contribute to continued growth under(More)
Changes in various physiological defenses including secondary metabolites, proline, total soluble protein and antioxidant enzymes were investigated in leaves and stems of eighteen flax lines either resistant or susceptible to powdery mildew. The total alkaloids content in flax stems significantly increased in resistant lines meanwhile they decreased in(More)
Two different biotic inducers [Pseudomonas fluorescens and Pseudomonas putida] and three different abiotic inducers [copper sulphate, indole butyric acid and potassium chloride] were tested for their efficacy in inducing resistance in lupin plants against Fusarium wilt disease caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lupini. Application of the biotic and abiotic(More)
Soil salinity is one of the most severe factors limiting growth and physiological response in Raphanus sativus. In this study, the possible role of plant growth promoting bacteria (PGPB) in alleviating soil salinity stress during plant growth under greenhouse conditions was investigated. Increasing salinity in the soil decreased plant growth, photosynthetic(More)
The effect of lead acetate in the presence or absence of cowpea seeds irradiated with gamma rays on morphological criteria, protein electrophoresis, isozymes, and random amplification of polymorphic DNA-polymerase chain reaction (RAPD-PCR) of leaves was investigated. A highly significant decrease in shoot and root length was observed upon lead acetate(More)
Soil salinity is one of the most severe factors limiting growth and physiological response in cowpea plants. In this study, the possible role of γ-irradiation in alleviating soil salinity stress during plant growth was investigated. Increasing salinity in the soil (25, 50, 100 and 200 mM NaCl) decreased plant growth, photosynthetic pigments content, total(More)
Chocolate spot disease is the most prevalent and important disease in the major faba bean growing regions in the world. Different concentrations of the abiotic inducer (0.3 and 0.5 mM benzothiadiazole) and the biotic inducer (1 × 107 and 2 × 107 spore/ml Trichoderma harzianum) were used alone or in combination to study their efficiency against faba bean(More)
An outdoor pot experiment was conducted in 2014/2015 growing season at Giza Agricultural Research Station to evaluate powdery mildew (PM) severity on 18 flax lines. The tested lines were divided into two distinct groups. The first group included 12 highly resistant lines (HRLs). Disease severity on these lines ranged from 1 to 10%. The second group included(More)
Two bacterial species; Pseudomonas fluorescens and Pseudomonas putida and three different chemical compounds; copper sulphate (CuSO4), Indole butyric acid (IBA) and potassium chloride (KCl) were tested for their ability to induce resistance in lupine plants against wilt disease caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lupini. Treatment of seeds with the selected(More)
Iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn) are essential nutrients for plant growth and development. Therefore, a pot experiment was conducted to examine the role of Zn and Fe on vegetative growth, photosynthetic pigments, soluble sugars, soluble protein, nitrate reductase (NR), ascorbate peroxidase (APX), catalase (CAT), minerals content, amino acid composition fraction,(More)
