Research Project: Control of Powdery Scab and Black Dot Through Resistance Breeding and Pathogen Management Strategies (WSU-Johnson)

Location: Vegetable and Forage Crops Production Research

Project Number: 5354-21220-010-11
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 27, 2007
End Date: Jul 31, 2012

Objective:
Screen potato germplasm resistance for resistance to major pests and pathogens. Test management strategies and their interaction with different levels of host resistance.

Approach:
Plant various genotypes of potato in affected fields infested with major pests and pathogens. Score resistance reactions. Where appropriate find linkages between resistance and molecular markers. Test management strategies and study interactions with different levels of resistance in potato breeding lines and cultivars. Documents SCA with WSU. Formerly 5354-21220-002-24S (5/08).
