Abstract

Phenylacetic acid (PAA) was evaluated for in vitro antioomycete activity and in vivo control efficacy against Phytophthora capsici. Microscopic observation revealed that the high level of anti-oomycete activity of PAA (10 μg/ml) against P. capsici is mainly due to the lytic effect on zoospores. Zoospore lysis began in the presence of 5 Hg/ml of PAA and most of the zoospores were collapsed at 10 μg/ml. PAA showed inhibitory activity against the zoospore germination and hyphal growth of P. capsici at the concentration of 50 μg/ml. In the glasshouse, the protective effect of PAA against Phytophthora blight was high on pepper plants when treated just before inoculation with P. capsici. In the artificially infested field, protection of pepper plants against the Phytophthora epidemic was achieved at a considerable level by PAA treatment.
