Effect of root-knot nematodes on the phenolic contents of barley and wheat

  author={M. A. Rezk and I. K. A. Ibrahim and A. A. M. Ibrahim},
The effects of Meloidogyne incognita races 1 (MI·l) and 3 (MI·3) and M. javanica on the phenolic content of barley and wheat roots were determined. The initial phenolic content in healthy roots of barley cv. Bonus was lower than that of cv. CC 163. The concentration of phenolic content in Bonus roots infected with MI-3 was increased, while decreased in case of MI·1 infection. Conversely, the phenolic content of CC 163 roots infected with MI·1 was increased, while decreased with MI-3 infection…

Influence of root-knot nematode infestation on antioxidant enzymes, chlorophyll content and growth in Pogostemon cablin (Blanco) Benth.
It is demonstrated that nematode infestation leads to increased peroxidase activities in the leaves of the patchouli plants and thereby, increase in phenolic content as a means of defence against nematodes infestation.
Comparison of the penetration, development and reproduction of Meloidogyne graminicola, and analysis of lignin and total phenolic content in partially resistant and resistant recombinant inbred lines of Oryza sativa
The accumulation of lignin in the epidermis of some RILs and the endodermis of TOG5674 at 1 day after inoculation suggests that lignification may act as a constitutive post-penetration mechanism of resistance to M. graminicola infection at least in some rice genotypes.
Potential role of endogeic earthworm Pontoscolex corethrurus in remediating banana blood disease: a preliminary observation
Although infected plantlets with earthworm inoculation showed disease symptoms, the disease severity was slightly less and the results suggested the potential role of P. corethrurus in improving plant health for disease management and sustainable agriculture.
