Polyphenols in Groundnut Genotypes Resistant and Susceptible to Seed Colonization by Aspergillus flavus uri icon


  • Thirteen groundnut genotypes, eight resistant and five susceptible to in vitro seed colonization by Aspergillus flavus were grown in replicated trials at three locations in Andhra Pradesh, India. Seed coats of these genotypes were analyzed for polyphenols using different methods. No significant correlation was observed between seed colonization and polyphenols content, which corroborates earlier observations on many genotypes using a single method for polyphenols estimation
