The total sugars inAcalypha indica infected with the root-knot nematode

  • S. Kannan


The total sugars in the leaves, roots and the root-knots ofAcalypha indica infected with the root-knot nematode were studied and compared with similar studies on the uninfected plant. It was observed that the sugar values were lesser in the infected plant compared to the uninfected plant. In the infected root system itself, the root-knots showed lesser amount of sugar compared to the non-knotty portions adjacent to the root-knots.
