Identify commercially viable olive knot resistant olive genotypes.
1)Clonally propagate all 210 Olive accessions maintained in the USDA National Clonal Germplasm repository at Davis, CA and grow out 15 clones of each accession. 2)Evaluate all trees produced in obj. 1 for resistance to the olive knot pathogen, Pseudomonas savastanoi pv savastanoi. 3)Conduct field evaluation of olive knot resistant genotypes shown to possess superior olive knot resistance in obj. 2.
