Research Project: Comparative Evaluation and Breeding of New Sources of Host Plant Resistance to CYSDV and Sweet Potato Whitefly Biotype

Location: Crop Improvement and Protection Research

Project Number: 2038-21530-001-23-A
Project Type: Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Mar 1, 2014
End Date: Dec 31, 2015

Evaluate exotic melon germplasm for resistance to sweetpotato whitefly biotype B (SPWF-B) and the major virus that it transmits in the desert Southwest U.S.
