The impairment of the balance (higher ROS production and/or lower buffering capacity), and therefore the occurrence of oxidative stress, has been related to an increased susceptibility to different environmental or biotic stress and to the development of different types of pathology in different animal species.
The phenolic substance is synthesized by the tomato plant when it is subjected to biotic stress. The UPV and CSIC have registered the national and international patents of the new antioxidant and the laboratory procedures used to isolate and synthesize it chemically.
In addition, as economics will likely become more strained in the agricultural sector, access to and application of precision farming techniques, advanced breeding for environmental and biotic stress tolerance, and design of more efficient planting, harvest, and maintenance equipment will play pivotal roles in the successful future farm.
Biotic stress resistance is one of the most important goals in the improvement of forage and turf grasses due to the yield and/or quality losses these stresses cause (Fujimori et al., 2004).
