The chloro gonoplasts in the seeds and tubers of potato solanum tuberosum as indicator of resistance to streptomycosis

Acta Agrobotanica 29(1): 15-24

The chloro gonoplasts in the seeds and tubers of potato solanum tuberosum as indicator of resistance to streptomycosis

The potato S. tuberosum L. cultivars Alma, Fita, Flisak, Epoka, Giewont, Lenino, Sowa and Warta with different degrees of resistance to streptomycosis [Streptomyces scabies] were histochemically tested to localize the chlorogonoplasts to determine which tissues store chlorogenic acid and whether the presence and quality of chlorogonoplasts may indicate resistance to streptomycosis. Chlorogonoplasts were found in the nutritive layer of tubers only in resistant varieties.
