Salicylic acid induced systemic resistant on peanut against Alternaria alternata

Salicylic acid induced systemic resistant on peanut against Alternaria alternata


The effect of Salicylic Acid (SA) in inducing resistance in groundnut plants against Alternaria alternata was investigated. Foliar application of SA at the concentration of 1 mM significantly reduced the leaf blight disease intensity and increased the pod yield under glasshouse conditions. Changes in the activities of phenylalanine ammonium lyase, chitinase β-1,3 glucanase and in phenolic content on groundnut after application of SA and inoculation with A. alternate were studied. In SA-treated leaves (plants) an increase in phenolic content was observed five days after challenge inoculation with A. alternata in groundnut plants pretreated with SA. There was a marked increase in chitinase and pathogen inoculation in SA-treated leaves. In chitinase, β-1,3 glucanase activities were observed in response to plants with an increase in SA treated leaves. Foliar applications of SA-induced in peroxidase and polyphenol oxidase activities were observed upon challenge inoculation with pathogen.
