PETEIRA, Belkis; FERNANDEZ, Arais; RODRIGUEZ, H y GONZALEZ, E. BION AND FITOMAS EFFECT AS RESISTANCE INDUCERS IN RICE PLANTS INFESTED WITH Steneotarsonemus spinki. Rev. Protección Veg. [online]. 2008, vol.23, n.1, pp. 32-37. ISSN 2224-4697.
The use of resistance inducers in plants appears as an ecologically amicable and attractive alternative for producers. In this work, the effect of Fitomas on the induction of different enzymatic systems associated with the defense mechanisms in rice plants inoculated with Steneotarsonemus spinki was studied and compared with that caused by BION under identical conditions. Fitomas was shown to be as effective in decreasing the mite population as when BION was applied. It caused the activation of enzymes such as peroxidases, polyphenol oxidases, phenylalanine ammonia liases and chitinases.
