Accumulation of Phytoalexins in Susceptible and Resistant Nearisogenic Lines of Tomato Inoculated with VerticilliumAlbo-Atrum or FusariumOxysporum F. Sp. Lycopersici
The mechanism of resistance of tomato plants to Verticillium and Fusarium wilt has been subject of many studies in recent years (Beckman 1987). Results obtained by various research groups, however, are sometimes contradictory, especially those concerning the role of phytoalexins (Tjamos and Smith 1974; McCance and Drysdale 1975; Elgersma 1980; Hutson and Smith 1980; Harrison and Beckman 1987). These contradictory results are difficult to explain and more research is urgently needed.
