Plant Defence Pathogen Siege, A Microplot Story
City:Lethbridge, AB
School:Winston Churchill High School
Abstract:Exploitation of a plant's natural defence mechanisms can provide opportunities to reduce snowmold losses in winter cereals. A foliar application of salicylic acid pathway activators decreases plant mortality when challenged by snowmold/low temperature stresses. Greater gains in survival occur in susceptible types compared to resistant varieties when defence is stimulated.
