Induction and Molecular Analyses of Resistance to Barley Powdery Mildew
The efforts in many countries to reduce the use of fungicides in the control of plant diseases has stimulated research aimed at a better understanding of the basic mechanisms by which plants defend themselves against diseases. This report concentrates on recent research on induced resistance in barley against barley powdery mildew and its molecular basis.
