Some biochemical defense responses enhanced by soluble silicon in bitter gourd-powdery mildew pathosystem


Silicon (Si) has been exploited for its beneficial effects in terms of disease control in many plants. Added Si was found to accumulate beneath the cuticle and act as a barrier against pathogen penetration, and also induce biochemical defense responses in plants. This study investigated the effect of soluble silicon (Si) supply on biochemical defense… (More)
