Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jul 01, 2012
End Date: Jun 30, 2013

Objective:
Identify new sources of resistance in the Citrullus germplasm collection to Pseudoperonospora cubensis [downy mildew] (Berk. & Curt.) Rostov.

Approach:
Screen 1600 accessions in the USDA germplasm collection of Citrullus for sources of resistance to Pseudoperonospora cubensis [downy mildew] (Berk. & Curt.) Rostov. Retest selected accessions to validate earlier results. Select and self-pollinate resistant plants and produce seed from them.
