Abstract

Nowadays, one of the main challenges is moving towards an eco-sustainable agriculture, able to preserve the food production through a reduced use of pesticides. Current global food sustenance by intensive agriculture is mainly based on economic crop monocultures and drastically reduces the biodiversity, increasing the yield losses due to the presence of biotic and abiotic stresses. A technology based on plasma activated water (PAW), characterized by the presence in liquid of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, was tested to try to ensure yield stability also enhancing the plant resistance responses and to promote an eco-sustainable management of plant diseases. In PAW-treated micropropagated periwinkle shoots, periwinkle and grapevine plants, qRT-PCR and small RNAs high-throughput sequencing were used to analyse the differential expression of genes involved in the major plant defence pathways. The results indicate that PAW treatment enhances the plant defence responses and provide an encouraging framework for future applications in plant disease management programs.
