Abstract

FORMULATION OF INCREASING ANTHOCYANIN CONTENT OF FLOWER OF ROSA INDICA L. PLANTS HAMPERED BY BOTRYTIS BLIGHT DISEASE BY 50% AQUEOUS-ETHANOLIC EXTRACT OF LEAVES OF CALOTROPIS PROCERA R.BR.

Suraj Sk* and Padma Chatterjee

ABSTRACT

Botrytis blight caused by Botrytis cinerea has hazardous effect on the red colour of garden rose (Rosa indica L.) flowers. The fungus Botrytis cinerea reduces the red colour of the rose flowers and thus causes a marked reduction of the market value of the rose flowers. The present work was undertaken to regulate the total anthocyanin content of Botrytis blighted horticulturally important rose plants that have been affected by Botrytis cinerea using active principles obtained from 50% aqueous ethanolic extract of leaves of Calotropis procera. Total monomeric anthocyanin concentration was measured here by the pH differentiation method, which is a rapid and simple spectrophotometric method. After partitioning the 50% aqueous- ethanolic leaf extract by using different solvents such as benzene, petroleum ether and chloroform, it was observed that the compound obtained from chloroform portion showed most inhibitory effect against Botrytis cinerea. Experimental findings indicated that Botrytis Blight reduced the total monomeric anthocyanin content. This reduction of anthocyanin content was recovered by using active principles obtained from chloroform extract of Calotropis procera and a remarkable increase of anthocyanin content was noted in the diseased plants.

Keywords: Calotropis procera, Botrytis cinerea, spectrophotometric method.
