Release of Six Green Pea Lines for Breeding With Outstanding Root Rot Resistant

Dr. Porter identified six pea lines with favourable horticultural characteristics (referred to as the 5000 series) that were highly resistant to Fusarium root rot and Fusarium wilts races 1, 2, and 5. The dry pea  company ProGene and green pea companies Brotherton Seed Inc., Pure Line Seed Inc., and Crites-Moscow Seed Inc. are using these lines to develop root rot resistant peas that will increase pea yields.
