Diversify the genetic base of resistance to diseases and develop new resistant spinach cultivars.
We will develop spinach populations for the identification and mapping of molecular markers linked to disease resistance, study the inheritance of the traits, and transfer these traits to new spinach cultivars through spinach breeding.
