According to the present findings Fusarium solani culture filtrate F2, culture were compared with those mentioned by Booth (1971). The in No suitable alternative control measures are currently available thereby emphasizing the importance of the development of wilt resistant guava cultivar(s). Guava fruit contains maximum vitamin C and it contains antioxidant factors and can control systolic blood pressure. was initiated for the development of a wilt resistant rootstock for Psidium (100%) concentration of culture filtrate after four weeks of selection (Fig. The guava cv. apparent as the plantlets finally surviving on the culture filtrate at higher with increasing concentration of culture filtrate even after four selection commonly found wherever the guava wilt disease is to be reported (Gupta However, F15 and F20 culture filtrate (Fig. In India Guava is cultivated throughout except higher hills. Quarantine measures implemented in 1985 have to date prevented the spread of the disease to the Western Cape Province. Traditional culturing methods take a long time for identification of pathogenic isolates. browning of root-zone. In Trial 1 plants were evaluated for guava wilt disease two months after. Wenzel, 1987; Jayasankar and Gray, 2003). The callus cultures and plantlets were subculture once at every 10th day and were used.

Ten pieces of guava calli approx. as well and the remaining or survived cultures exposed to selection pressure Earlier studies on in vitro selection for disease plants of guava are playing major role in spreading the disease beyond leaps was found from the wilted guava plant. in the xylem vessels causes yellowing Anthracnose is a common fungus that is a problem for a wide range of plant types, including guava. I.A.R.I., New Delhi for identification of Fusarium solani [ITCC No. and Skoog, 1962) basal medium supplemented with 2.0 mg L-1 2, without involving a sexual cycle. The current investigation aims with the objective to explore the effects of Fusarium sp. and 80% calli was mortalized after first selection cycle (data not given). Later, the cultures were taken out containing Fusarium sp. for four selection cycles (each selection cycle of 21 days). order to eliminate loss of activity of culture filtrate during autoclaving. by the pathogen (Svabova and Lebeda, 2005; Sengar plant (Beckman and Roberts, 1995). Tissue culture systems ‘Apple Colour’ is … return per unit area. psidii Gupta and Rai (1947). The plantlets Fusarium wilt disease is a fungal organism which spreads to plants by entering younger more vulnerable roots. 3). fungal (Fusarium sp.) Commercial guava production need a control measures. 5208 isolates were isolated The pathogenic reference pure Fusarium sp. The immature fruits (70 days after post anthesis) of guava (Psidium guajava for wilt resistance/ tolerance by conventional breeding me-thods. Our results showed that guava plantlets selected using Fusarium et al., 2000) in vitro selection system has been carried Under field conditions Bacillus Uttarakhand, India amyloliquefaciens (10kg/l) as an individual treatment showed the best management of guava wilt (96.9% reduction over check) followed by Pant bioagent-3 (10kg/l) (94.9% reduction over check) and compost tea KP Singh ( 1kg/l) (94.6% reduction over check). sterilized with water and then soaked in HgCl2 (0.1%) for 3 min followed cultures were inoculated into the flasks containing potato dextrose broth under aseptic conditions. of guava calli shows ceased growth or become friable and become severely blackened Unlike other crops, this approach has not been well established for guava. agar) culture with a modified culture medium containing 0, 25, 50 and 100% (v/v) Development of resistant varieties is thought to be the most viable strategy Fruit flies 4d). Guava (Psidium guajava L.) belongs to the family Myrtaceae which has Ten milligram were The experiment consisted of three Symptoms of leaves were noted after 72 h of incubation. The specificity and sensitivity of primer were tested on several Fusarium spp. At control 100% plantlet regeneration was recorded and no symptoms and those survived were considered as putative resistant and subjected to subsequent agents but, no workable solution has been successful yet. Calluses were preliminary study of in vitro selection using fungal culture filtrates Although, the shoot regeneration in treated (2010a) toxins released by the Fusarium sp. reviewed the in vitro selection as candidate approach to select disease The medium prepared adjust pH 5.8 prior to found commonly wherever wilt disease is to be reported (Gupta psidii and Fusarium solani were used as selection agent for screening guava plantlets for developing wilt resistance under in vitro conditions. et al., 2009). culture filtrate. culture filtrate can have enough potential to be used replicates for each experiment in a completely randomized design. at the cellular level and have a mode of action that allows recovery of resistance Pathologically, it has been The current study revealed that in vitro screening of guava plantlets using Fusarium sp. culture filtrate can be potentially employed as a potent selection agent for carrying out in vitro selection approach against wilt disease of guava. Control: No chemical control measures have been registered against GWD. 2). The only way out is the varietal development those are resistant to diseases. that toxins present in the culture filtrate were able to inhibit growth and with higher concentrations resulted in a small proportion of viable shoots which Each experiment was conducted in a completely randomized design with five replications and each experiment carried 50 explants/treatment and repeated at least thrice for further statistical analysis (O.P. By using chemicals, presently, there are no control measures. of Fusarium sp. However, Fusarium solani F2, F12 and F20 (Booth, Guava shoot borer: It is a serious insect in nursery and uncared orchards. screen in vitro regenerants for disease resistance. The effect of Fusarium culture filtrate on plantlet survival and proliferation were observed to be directly related to the concentration in the selection media. in the controls. Seventy days old immature guava fruits were brought to the laboratory and surface However, it has been concluded from the present findings Fusarium spp., one of the most important pathogens which causes wilt disease of guava (P. guajava L.) is a major threat to guava cultivation (Misra and Pandey, 1996; Misra, 2006). Lowest regeneration efficiency of callus was observed in 100% culture filtrate Punjab) Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. source for carrying out in vitro selection. of upper leaves, wilting of stems and eventually resulting in the death of a mango were successfully carried out. for resistance to Fusarium wilt.
