Abstract

Abstract The adverse effects of increasing concentration of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. malvacearum on cotton seed quality parameters, seedling dry weight and on defense-related enzyme, Phenylalanine Ammonia Lyase (PAL) were studied. Different concentrations of pathogen (1×102 to 1×108 CFU/ml) were treated on both fuzzy and acid delinted seeds and subjected to the standard blotter method to study the effect of the pathogen on seed quality parameters. The seedling symptom test following the roll towel method, the modified germination test to study the blight incidence and the field emergence test were carried out to discover the field planting value and disease incidence under laboratory and field conditions. From these experiments, it was found that the decrease in the seed quality parameters like seed germination, seedling vigour, and the dry weight of seedlings when X. axonopodis pv. malvacearum concentration was increased. Whereas the bacterial blight incidence increased with an increase in pathogen concentration, in both greenhouse and field conditions. Phenylalanine ammonia lyase activity was found to increase along with the pathogen concentrations, but total phenol content decreased as pathogen concentration increased. The effect of X. axonopodis pv. malvacearum load on seed quality parameters, PAL enzyme activity of fuzzy and acid delinted cotton seeds are discussed in the present study.
