Research Project: Development of Management Strategies for Bacterial Leaf Spot

Location: Crop Improvement and Protection Research

Project Number: 5305-22000-015-02
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: Apr 01, 2010
End Date: Mar 31, 2015

Objective:
Objective 1. Provide BLS phenotype evaluations Lettuce Breeding objectives. Objective 2. Screen bacterial strains available in our collection for their ability to overcome BLS resistance currently deployed. Objective 3. Monitor strains of Xcv isolated from diseased lettuce throughout California for ability to overcome resistance.

Approach:
We will conduct laboratory and greenhouse experiments of lettuce to advance disease resistance breeding, understanding of mechanisms involved in resistance and to understand how pathogen diversity influences disease.
