Effect of Inducers Against Tobamovirus Infection in Tomato and Bell Pepper

K.N. Madhusudhan, M.S. Nalini, H.S. Prakash and H.S. Shetty    

Abstract: Tomato and bell pepper seeds were treated with salicylic acid (50 mM), neem oil (5%) and Pseudomonas fluorescens (slurry). The seedlings were sprayed with salicylic acid (50 mM) and neem oil (5%). The concentration of Tomato mosaic tobamovirus (ToMV) and Tobacco mosaic tobamovirus (TMV) was assessed based on the number of local lesions on Nicotiana glutinosa. The results showed that the seed/seedling treatment with inducers reduced the number of local lesions when compared to untreated ones. Salicylic acid was an effective inducer.
