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 ...
