Biochemical basis of resistance in brinjal to Leucinodes orbonalis Guenee and their correlation with shoot and fruit damage

Author(s):

Abstract:
The field experiment was conducted with twenty brinjal genotypes to identify biochemical characteristics of brinjal plants for their resistance against shoot and fruit borer damage at Mahatma Phule Krishi Vidyapeeth, Rahuri (MS). Various biochemical parameters like moisture, ash, crude protein, crude fat, total sugar, polyphenols, peroxidase activity and polyphenol oxidase activity were recorded from shoots and fruits of twenty different brinjal genotypes. Among the genotypes moisture, total sugar, crude protein and crude fat were positively correlated with shoot and fruit damage. While ash content, polyphenols, peroxidase activity and polyphenol oxidase activity were negatively correlated with shoot and fruit damage. The present investigation provides precise information for the selection of important biochemical characters which may contribute more towards resistance to shoot and fruit borer.
