Abstract: Acibenzolar-S-methyl (ASM) is a functional analogue of salicylic acid and an artificial synthetic chemical elicitor. ASM has been shown to induce resistance in a wide range of fruit and vegetables. Spraying with ASM before harvest or postharvest dipping treatment decreased postharvest diseases of pear, peach, grape, strawberry, muskmelon, mandarin, banana, loquat, tomato and potato. The resistance induced by ASM is related to various defense responses, including induction of reactive oxygen species accumulation, activation of phenylpropanoid pathway and production of pathogenesis-related proteins. Range of fruit and vegetables of ASM application, the efficacy of ASM and mechanisms involved in induced resistance with ASM are still need to be investigated in future researches.
