Plants respond to grazing by producing chemical defense compounds such as protease inhibitors and secondary metabolites such as flavonoids, making them less palatable for feeding and negatively affecting the physiology of insects. The purpose of this study was to assess the phytochemical response of soybean cultivars Glycine max resistant (IAC-17, IAC-24) and susceptible (IAC-P1) to insects after mechanical damage. These cultivars were mechanically injured, and after 24 HPLC was used to identify and quantify flavonoids in plant samples for several … Continue reading “Does Mechanical Damage on Soybean Induces the Production of Flavonoids?”
