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)
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)
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)
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)
Tomato plants are severely infested with Aphis gossypii in all over the world. The present investigation aims at evaluating effects of tomato leaf biochemical components as well as leaflet surface physical features on the susceptibility of five tomato cultivars (Alissa, GS, Logan, Super Strain B and Andos). Results clearly indicated significant differences(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)
Arsenic is a non-essential and toxic heavy metal, which can cause physiological disorder in plants. The present study was undertaken to examine the possible roles of sodium nitroprusside (SNP, a donor of NO) in protection against oxidative damage due to arsenic (As) toxicity in faba bean (Vicia faba L.) plants. In this study, we measured physiochemical(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)
