Plant genomics in lentil breeding: development of a cDNA-based rapid screening method for Ascochyta blight resistance in lentil (Lens culinaris L.)
Ascochyta blight causes severe crop losses in temperate lentil production areas around the world, including Saskatchewan. At present there is no reliable system available to breeders for identifying blight resistant lentil ...
Sclerotinia stem rot control in small-seeded lentil production in the Black Soil Zone
Lentil production in the black soil zone is limited by the susceptibility of the crop to diseases such as sclerotinia stem rot. The objective of this project was to determine stem rot control strategies in small-seeded ...
Increase of Mycosphaerella blight in field pea through plant injury
Mycosphaerella blight, caused by Mycosphaerella pinodes, is a major constraint to field pea production in the prairies. Controlling the disease by developing better genetic resistance is a major goal of field pea breeding ...
Red lentil production in Saskatchewan: Y not 2K?
Genetic study of Ascochyta blight resistance in chickpea and lentil
Ascochyta blight is responsible for severe crop losses in most chickpea and lentil production areas around the world. The research was conducted to study the genetic basis for Ascochyta blight resistance in chickpea and ...
Evaluation of a RAPD marker linked to Ascochyta blight resistance in chickpea
Ascochyta blight caused by Ascochyta rabiei is a devastating disease of chickpea. Development of resistant cultivars is the most efficient and cost effective control method. The present study was undertaken to determine ...
