Synthetic Elicitor-Induced Defense Responses in Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) Cultivated in Côte d'Ivoire against Bacterial Wilt Caused by Ralstonia solanacearum | Chapter 07 | Recent Advances in Biological Research Vol. 2

Tomato is the most consumed vegetable in Côte d’Ivoire because it is used to cook most sauces and all forms of salad. Tomatoes annual yield fluctuates between 22,000 and 35,000 tons. The yield remains below demand. Several factors can explain these low yields. Among them, biotic factors are the most important. Among bacterial diseases impacting negatively tomato yield, bacterial wilt caused by Ralstonia solanacearum is a dangerous one that causes serious damage in the nursery as well as in plantation. It can cause up to 100% yield loss depending on the variety. Bacterial wilt caused by Ralstonia solanacearum still constitutes tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) economical disease in the world. This disease is favored by very humid soils and high temperatures. Genetic control currently used is the most effective strategy. Disease control in crops has also become possible through the induction of plant defense reaction. This work aims at assessing the effect of both synthetic elicitors (BABA and ASM) supposed to induce tomato defense reaction against bacteria and particularly Ralstonia solanacearum. BABA and ASM solutions were each applied at concentrations of 5 to 100 ppm on R. solanacearum in vitro, and its growth was recorded. Then, the in vivo development of bacterial wilt was assessed following different elicitors application modes to both local tomato cultivars Tropimech and Caraïbo respectively sensitive and tolerant to this disease. Up to 100 ppm, BABA and ASM elicitors showed no antibacterial effect against R. solanacearum. However, these elicitors revealed a protective action against the development of bacterial wilt after inoculation of R. solanacearum. Compared to leaf treatment, the supply of elicitors to roots or successively to roots and leaves reduced the development of bacterial wilt by more than 50%. Both tomato varieties (Tropimech and Caraibo) expressed identical resistance levels facing Ralstonia solanacearum after BABA and ASM application. The elicitation of tomato plants could be an ecological approach for effective control of R. solanacearum. It is concluded that control bacterial wilt caused by R. solanacearum using ASM and BABA as elicitors of tomato defense. Two tomato cultivars that are Tropimech and Caraïbo respectively sensitive and tolerant to bacterial wilt were used. Tropimech which is the sensitive cultivar expressed identical resistance levels facing Ralstonia solanacearum after BABA or ASM application as Caraibo, the tolerant cultivar. Thus, ASM and BABA can be used in control to bacterial wilt of tomato. This technique can be considered as an ecological approach and an alternative to chemical control of bacterial wilt caused by R. solanacearum in tomato.

Empowerment and Leader Member Exchange towards Organizational Citizenship Behavior Readiness among Government Workforce in Malaysia | Book Publisher International

  State agencies are among the most significant entities that represent the public's needs, and their programmes are essential to a state's and the nation's economic growth and development. State agencies have been rife by public concerns for years, as demonstrated by the Public Complaints Bureau, as problems of inefficiency in service quality and delivery have yet to meet the public's standards. With the support of 15 employees from state agencies on Malaysia's east coast, this study aims to achieve three targets. The first and second objectives are to investigate the ties between leader-member exchange (LMX) and OCB empowerment. The final aim is to define the most significant factors that affect OCB willingness. A total of 288 people took part in the survey, which was conducted using a cluster sampling process. The survey items had achieved the necessary reliability, according to the pilot test results, and some sub-dimensions were renamed after factor analysis.

Re-asserting Cultural Perspectives: Old People and New Ideas in Bole Butake’s Lake God and The Survivors and Sankie Maimo’s Succession in Sarkov | Chapter 10 | Perspectives of Arts and Social Studies Vol. 2

African cultures have undergone transformations from the colonial period to the present, often to the detriment of its cultural evolution and within the larger global community. As it were, colonial education subordinated African communalism and created in its place an anti-African spirit evident in the assimilation of western values. This did not only end up in a kind of cultural betrayal, but also posed as a serious threat to the dignity and identity of the people. Those who fall prey to this kind of cultural imperialism are the young people who are often irrationally carried away by western fashion and modes that they tend to neglect and/or forget their cultural ways of life as they join the race of “progress.” This situation has given rise to a conscious effort by creative writers to re-assert and protect African values while at the same time liberating themselves from the longstanding western effort at suppressing, controlling and dominating their thoughts particularly through n

The Utilization of Agro-Waste: A Nanobiotechnology Point of View | Chapter 10 | Recent Advances in Biological Research Vol. 5

Aims: To review the utilization of agro-waste in the eco-friendly synthesis of nanoparticles and their biomedical, catalytic and industrial applications. Study Design: A review. Place and Duration of Study: This review was carried out in the interim of three weeks exploiting all relevant data, literature and publications where necessary. Methodology: Profound gathering of literatures/publications and reviews were employed with all carefulness and professional courtesy; enough useful information were gathered over time. The introduction emphasizes the dawn of science and technology, when great ideas were still latent later leading to the advent of history changing innovations like the completion of human genome and then the birth of nanotechnology. Although, nanotechnology had been known decades been popularized by Richard Feynman in his talks in the year 1959; and in this present dispensation, nanotechnology has been a solution to many intricate challenges/ t
