Technical Abstract: Some of the objectives of this research are to study the biology of economically important peanut pathogens including Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus (TSWV), and to determine the role of disease resistance in managing soil-borne peanut pathogens, particularly Sclerotinia blight, Verticillium wilt, and Southern blight. In 2001, several studies were conducted to evaluate the performance of peanut lines, including the Sclerotinia-resistant advanced breeding lines (some with high O/L ratios), and fungal soil-borne pathogens under field conditions at three Oklahoma locations. Also a study that was established in a field near Pearsall, Texas to evaluate the reaction of advanced breeding lines to TSWV.
