  • Most plant protection methods currently applied use toxic chemicals noxious to the environment for pathogen and pest control. Induced resistance exploiting natural defense machinery of plants could be proposed as an alternative, non-conventional and ecologically-friendly approach for plant protection. Its introduction into agricultural practice could minimize the scope of chemical control, thus contributing to the development of sustainable agriculture. Induced resistance can be defined as an… CONTINUE READING
