Phyllosticta musarum Infection-Induced Defences Suppress Anthracnose Disease Caused by Colletotrichum musae in Banana Fruits cv ‘Embul’
Examining the potential of P. musarum-induced defences, in the control of anthracnose, the most destructive postharvest disease in banana, finds defences that retained during ripening, restrict C. musae development at the ripe stage.
Pre-harvest chemical elicitor treatment enhances induced resistance in harvested banana fruit cv. ‘Embul’ and reduces anthracnose caused by Colletotrichum musae
Developing banana fruits cv.v42i2 were treated in the field with chemical elicitors, Bion®, salicylic acid (SA) or K 2 HPO 4 at two stages, 2 and 4 or 9 and 11 weeks after bunch emergence, and the development of anthracnose was assessed during ripening.
Induction of Chitinase and Phenolics in Banana CV. Embul in Response to Phyllosticta Musarum Infection and Elicitors of Induced Defence Responses
The objectives of the present study were to investigate P. musarum induced defence responses further and search for effective elicitors to induce banana fruit defences.
