Project Number: 3655-21000-062-04-A
Project Type: General Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Mar 12, 2009
End Date: May 31, 2013
Workshops will be held at regional and national Allium meetings. We will develop a mechanical transmission protocol or Iris Yellow Spot Virus and validate sources of resistance or tolerance identified in field evaluations.
Sources of IYSV resistance or tolerance will be validated in controlled environments by mechanical inoculations. Deliver validated germplasms to private and public sector breeder. Develop workshops for public and private-sector researchers, students, and regional grower and consumer groups for onion to illustrate the usefulness of genomics to solve high-priority research goals.
