Tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV) resistant cultivar T07-4 and susceptible cultivar T07-1 were inoculated with the root endophytic fungus, Piriformospora indica in greenhouse to study the effects of P. indica inoculation on the tomato growth, early yield, fruit quality and resistance to TYCLV. The results indicated that P. indica stimulated root growth,(More)
After germination, plants progress through juvenile and adult phases of vegetative development before entering the reproductive phase. The character and timing of these phases vary significantly between different plant species, which makes it difficult to know whether temporal variations in various vegetative traits represent the same, or different,(More)
A mutant tomato cultivar (HT10-3-2) with indeterminate growth habit was obtained from a cultivar (T10-3-2) with determinate growth habit. The character of indeterminate growth habit in HT10-3-2 could be inherited stably. Unlike other normal growth habit cultivars, which are controlled by the SELF PRUNING gene, it was shown here that HT10-3-2 has no mutation(More)
