Biochemical composition of vascular sap from the inflorescence of apparently healthy and root (wilt) diseased coconut palms



Biochemical composition of vascular sap from the inflorescence of apparently healthy and root (wilt) diseased coconut palms



Journal of Plantation Crops 16(Supplement): 41-46



Vascular sap was collected from the inflorescences of apparently healthy and root (wilt) diseased coconut palms under aseptic conditions. The pH of the sap ranged from 6.8 to 7.5. Osmotic concn was lower in the sap from the root (wilt) affected palms (540-620 mmol/kg) while apparently healthy palms showed higher values (790-850 mmol/kg). Direct analysis of the sap for sugars, protein, free amino acids, lipids and sterols showed discernible difference between the healthy and diseased palms.
