چکیده مقاله:
In addition to producing energy through the production of vitamins and essential amino acids, plants play an important role in human nutrition and health. Strawberries are one of the most popular soft fruits that are rich in vitamins such as vitamin C, thiamin, niacin and minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium. In addition, it has energy, protein, carbohydrates. Among the fungal pathogens, the Ascomycete Botrytis cinerea is considered as the primary pathogen of harvested strawberries and in the world, it leads to significant economic losses on strawberries and makes its export difficult. Ethylene plays a key role in many aspects of the plant's life cycle, regulating various biological processes, fruit ripening, senescence, and non-living stresses in the plant. Ethylene softens the fruit and makes ripe strawberries susceptible to post-harvest diseases. Since biological control based on living microorganisms is a sustainable long-term solution with benefits for consumers, farmers and the environment, in this study, the Bacillus velezensis UTB96 was used to reduce ethylene in strawberry fruit by inoculation of strawberry roots with bacteria. The subject was investigated in greenhouse conditions. The results showed that B. velezensis UTB96 bacteria with 108 CFU population can reduce the amount of ethylene production in the produced fruit by 85% in the form of root inoculation.
