Silicon-enhanced resistance to rice blast is attributed to silicon-mediated defence resistance and its role as physical barrier


A series of experiments were performed to study the effects of silicon (Si) on rice blast development, H2O2 accumulation and lipid peroxidation in a controlled rice—Magnaporthe grisea pathosystem. Rice plants supplied with Si as a single dose immediately after pathogen inoculation (−/+Si) exhibited the same high protection against disease as plants treated… (More)
