  • Black root rot, caused by Thielaviopsis basicola, is a serious disease of cotton in Australia, causing necrosis of the root cortex, delayed seedling development and fruit set, and yield loss when severe. We investigated the potential for acibenzolar-S-methyl to induce resistance in cotton against T. basicola in naturally infested soil. In pot experiments, soaking seeds in solutions of acibenzolar-S-methyl (25 or 50 μg/mL for 3 to 5 h before planting) consistently reduced disease severity on tap… CONTINUE READING
