Abstract:
Germinated seeds of two chickpea cultivars ILC482 and INRAT87/1, respectively susceptible and moderately resistant to Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceris (Foc), were preinoculated with a suspension of two Rhizobium isolates PchDMS and Pch43. Three days later, the seedlings were challenged by root dip with a conidial suspension of Foc race 0. The two Rhizobium isolates protected chickpea plants from F. oxysporum infection; the best protection has been obtained by PchDMS for the two cultivars. For the susceptible cultivar, mortality was 12.5 and 33.33% for treated plants, respectively with PchDMS and Pch43 as compared to the 79.16% in the inoculated control with Foc only. For the INRAT87/1 Cv. mortality was 8.33 and 12.5% for treated plants, respectively with PchDMS and Pch43 compared to the 54.16% in the control inoculated treatment. The two Rhizobium isolates stimulated the peroxidases and polyphenoloxidases activities and induced the accumulation of phenolic compounds. The maximum of peroxidases activities in plant roots were reached 24 h after challenging. However, the higher activity of polyphenoloxidases and the higher level of the phenolic compounds were recorded 72 h after Foc inoculation. Comparing the two strains, PchDMS was more effective in inducing enzymes and phenolic compounds and highest levels were recorded in INRAT87/1 cultivar.
