FIELD-TESTS FOR CUCUMBER RESISTANCE TO GUMMY STEM BLIGHT IN NORTH-CAROLINA

HORTSCIENCE, 28(4), 327–329.

By: T. Wehner n & P. Stamand

author keywords: ASCOCHYTA-CUCUMIS; COLLETOTRICHUM-ORBICULARE; CUCUMIS-ANGURIA; CUCUMIS-MYRIOCARPUS; CUCUMIS-SATIVUS; CUCUMIS-ZEYHERI; CUCURBITACEAE; DIDYMELLA-BRYONIAE; DISEASE RESISTANCE; MYCOSPHAERELLA-CITRULLINA; MYCOSPHAERELLA-MELONIS; PHOMA-CUCURBITACEARUM; PHYLLOSTICTA-CUCURBITACEARUM; VEGETABLE BREEDING
TL;DR: To determine whether resistance exists under North Carolina Field conditions, 83 cultigens were evaluated in the field for their resistance to a mixture of D. bryoniae isolates and identified as resistant in Wisconsin and The Netherlands were not resistant in North Carolina.
