The plant defense activator, acibenzolar-S-methyl (ASM) was tested for its ability to protect tomato seedlings against verticillium wilt caused by Verticillium dahliae. ASM exhibited in vitro an antifungal activity in dose-dependent manner against three strains of the pathogen with the less virulent strain SH being the most inhibited. This inhibition of mycelial growth reached 75 % when ASM was applied at concentrations higher than 50 μg ml−1. ASM also induced an elevated protection against the… CONTINUE READING
