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 ...
Lentil canopy modification through architecture and stem stiffness
Current large green lentil cultivars similar to the cultivar Laird are susceptible to lodging in Saskatchewan. The goal of the study was to identify characteristics of lentil canopy architecture that will lead to reduced ...
