Research Project: Development of Potato Germplasm for Golden Nematode Resistance

Location: Biological Integrated Pest Management Unit

Project Number: 1907-22000-021-16
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 01, 2011
End Date: Aug 31, 2015

Objective:
The major objective of this cooperative research project is to develop potato germplasm with resistance to multiple pathotypes of the golden nematode.

Approach:
1) Crosses of potato clones will be made to generate populations that are segregating for resistance to multiple pathotypes of the golden nematode and improved horticultural and marketing characteristics. 2) Potato clones will be evaluated for resistance to golden nematode pathotypes of Ro1 and Ro2.
