Abstract

To ascertain the role and mechanism of cinnamic acid in the process of soil-borne Fusarium wilt infection with fava bean, we studied the effect of cinnamic acid on the faba bean and Fusarium oxysporum f. fabae (FOF). Our results showed that cinnamic acid treatment affected the physiological resistance of faba bean to FOF after inoculation with the pathogen and enhanced the pathogenicity of the pathogen, which may have led to aggravation of infection by the pathogen and increases in the incidence rates of Fusarium wilt and disease.
