Biotic Stress Resistance in Millets by I. K. Das, P. G. Padmaja

By I. K. Das, P. G. Padmaja

Biotic pressure Resistance in Millets presents an enormous consultant to the affliction and pest-related demanding situations of this very important nutrients crop. Biotic stresses are one of many significant constraints for millet creation, yet newly rising and forward-thinking issues of sickness and bug pests tend to elevate due to altering climate, making this an relevant ebook on most sensible practices.

Current ideas are typically during the improvement of resistant cultivars, because the use of chemical substances is cost-prohibitive to a lot of these generating millet in constructing international locations the place it truly is of such a lot price as a nutrition resource. This booklet explores non-chemical concentrated suggestions for bettering plant resistance and maintaining crop yield.

This single-volume reference could be vital for researchers, lecturers and scholars within the disciplines of Agricultural Entomology, Plant safeguard, Resistance Plant Breeding and Biotechnological pest management.

  • Establishes simple ideas of host resistance supplying foundational perception
  • Synthesizes earlier biotic pressure resistance examine with the most recent findings to orient study for destiny options for plant protection
  • Focuses completely on host plant resistance on all significant illnesses and pests of millets
  • Presents info and techniques which are globally appropriate as millets achieve significance as a health and wellbeing food

Example text

Fungal mycelium colonizes the xylem vessels blocking the translocation of water and carbohydrate to the upper plant parts. Under the condition of stress (moisture, temperature, and photosynthesis) that often coincide with the onset of flowering, the host-defence system is weakened and activity of M. phaseolina increases many folds leading to a rapid and extensive rotting of roots and stalks that result in lodging of the crop. The pathogen produces at least six phytotoxins, which injure cell protoplast and often prime the infected plants toward more severe disease.

And Curvularia spp. have also been found associated with this disease. This disease may have some relationship with grain mold. However, considering the plant parts affected it is dealt with as a separate disease. The initial infection takes place at the lower part of the panicle near the base of the rachis and spreads upward. Continuous high humidity at the time of flowering favors infection and colonization. Use of a resistant cultivar is the best way to manage the disease. 3 Ergot Ergot or sugary disease is a serious limiting factor in production of hybrid seed, particularly if seedset in male sterile line is delayed due to lack of viable pollen.
