Development of White Mold Resistant Peas

Pea lines PI 240515 and PI 169603 were identified with novel resistance to the white mold pathogen.  These pea lines are being used by the pea breeder, Alain Lecompte of Vilmorin, the fourth largest seed company in the world, and by Dr. Kevin McPhee, a dry pea breeder from North Dakota State University to develop white mold resistant pea cultivars.
