Research Project: Phenotyping for Pythium Pod Rot Resistance

Location: Peanut and Small Grains Research Unit

Project Number: 3070-21220-009-011-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 15, 2022
End Date: Sep 14, 2024

Phenotype peanut germplasm and developed populations for resistance to Pythium pod rot, and identify markers associated with disease resistance.

Single-seed descent-derived peanut accessions from the U.S. and ICRISAT mini-core collections, as well as recombinant inbred line populations, will be evaluated in the greenhouse for resistance to Pythium pod rot. Markers associated with disease resistance will be identified using genome-wide association studies (GWAS).
