Abstract

One of the most important members of the Potyviridae is Zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV). It affects watermelon [Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Matsum. & Nakai] as well as other cucurbits in most parts of the world. Although several genotypes have been reported as having resistance to ZYMV,...

Abstract

Separately, grafting and the use of plastic mulch can increase yield, quality, and early harvest of watermelon (Citrullus lanatus), especially when plants are under biotic and/or abiotic stress. A 2-year field study was conducted to evaluate the combination of four different rootstocks and two...

Abstract

Root traits are an important component for productive plant performance. Roots offer immediate absorptive surfaces for water and nutrient acquisition and are thus critical to crop growth and response to biotic and abiotic stresses. In addition, roots can provide the first line of defense against...

Abstract

High temperature is considered a critical abiotic stressor that is increasing continuously, which is severely affecting plant growth and development. The use of heat-resistant rootstock grafting is a viable technique that is practiced globally to improve plant resistance towards abiotic stresses....

Abstract

Carotenoids are the main pigments in watermelon (Citrullus lanatus L.) fruit and contribute to its aesthetic and nutritional value. Phytoene synthase (PSY) is reported to be the first rate-limiting enzyme in carotenogenesis and controls the carotenoid flux. This study aimed to identify PSY genes...

Abstract

The ladybird beetle, Harmonia sedecimnotata (F.) was studied in biology, life table, consumption rates, molecular characterization, and field evaluation. The net reproductive rate (R0), based on the age-stage and two-sex life table, was 43.2 eggs/individual. The female adults lived longer (68.1 d)...

Abstract

Melon necrotic spot virus (MNSV) can cause significant economic losses due to decreased quality in cucurbit crops. The current study is the first to use reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP) for detection of MNSV. A set of four LAMP primers was designed based on the ...

Abstract

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) and circular RNAs (circRNAs) play vital roles in plant defense responses against viral infections. However, there is no systematic understanding of lncRNAs and circRNAs and their competing endogenous RNA (ceRNA) networks in watermelon under cucumber green mottle...
