CORRELATION OF RESISTANCE AND SUSCEPTIBILITY OF TOMATO CULTIVARS TO ROTYLENCHULUS RENIFORMIS WITH LEVELS OF PHENOLICS AND AMINO ACIDS PRESENT

I. Mahmood, A. Siddiqui

Abstract


Phenolics and amino acids were high in tolerant cultivars of tomato followed by susceptible and highly susceptible cultivars. Percentage increase in both phenolics and amino acids were high in tolerant and lowest in highly susceptible cultivars when inoculated with Rotylenchulus reniformis. There was positive correlation between degree of nematode resistance and amounts of phenolics and amino acids present in tomato cultivars.
