End Date: Jun 30, 2017
1. Develop PD resistant table and raisin grape germplasm/cultivars with fruit quality equivalent to present day standards. 2. Develop molecular markers and linkage map for Xf/PD resistance in the BD5-117 family (SEUS) which represents a source of resistance different from V. arizonica F8909-08.
1. Make crosses combining homologs of resistance from b43-17 to develop the highest level of resistance possible. 2. Make crosses to pyramid powdery mildew resistance with PD resistance. 3. Develop Resistant Gene Analog (RGA) markers to facilitate marker assisted selection (MAS) for PD resistance. 4. Evaluate resistant selections in field production trials for commercial fruit quality.
