Since 1961 he was  interested in  investigating the nature of plant resistance.to diseases. He focused his attention on variable resistance of cereals to obligate parasites such as powdery mildew and rusts. It was necessary to find out a factor which changes during the ontogeny and through the environment. The solution was found up in biophysical values (redox and pH).
 He presented new hypothesis:
The principle of resistance consists in the ability of the parasite to gain the energy in the host cell. The parasite uses the terminal oxidase of the host plasmalemma.
The specific phenolics are the substrate for this enzyme. The main features of this hypothesis are:
1. There is no free oxygen in the cell plasma.
2. The redox potentials are generated by the respiration of the cells by the sum of activities in cell organelles which produce the electrons and the activity of oxidoreductase (the terminal oxidase) in the plasmalemma. The electron carriers can permeate from the cell to the environment and they are soluble in water.
3. The redox potential is the basis of electric gradients in the plant which plays the main role in its integrity as well as for the life of the parasite.
4. The parasite respires through the terminal oxidase of the host.
5. The environmental conditions influence the enzyme activity of host and parasite cells differently by which different redox potentials may appear in the host and parasite cells resulting in unspecific oxidation or reduction of electron carriers.
6. The acidity of the host cells determinates the formation of conidia or cleistothecia (in powdery mildew) or formation of redia or telia (in rusts).
7. Depend on redox potential it is possible to explain some correlations in plants. 
Without knowledge of RP gradients it is not possible to explain the integrity of plants and related phenomena.
