Inheritance of resistance to Ascochyta blight in lentil
Lentil (Lens culinaris Medik.) is a major grain legume (pulse) crop in North America. Canada is the second largest lentil producer and the largest exporter in the world (Slinkard, 1996). Ascochyta blight, caused by Ascochyta ...
Drought studies in dry bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)
Seed size in lentil: iMapping at the U of S
Use of isozyme markers to select for resistance to Ascochyta blight in lentil
The possible linkages of isozyme loci with genes for resistance to Ascochyta blight, caused by Ascochyta fabae f. sp. lentis Gossen et al., was investigated in lentil (Lens culinaris Medikus). The F2 seeds of five crosses, ...
Air-seeding dry beans
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 ...
Progress on the hybridization of cultivated lentil Lens culinaris Medik. and wild species Lens tomentosus Ladizinsky
The domestication of lentil has produced bottleneck effects resulting in a narrow genetic basis which has resulted in reduced levels of resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses relative to its wild relatives. Phenotypic ...
The future of red lentils in Canada
Lentil is the fifth largest grain legume crop in the world after bean, pea, chickpea and fababean. The major producers are India (domestic consumption), Turkey (export) and Canada (export). Most of the lentils produced in ...
