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