    University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY, USA
    Caused by the fungus Thielaviopsis basicola, black root rot (BRR) can be a very severe problem if susceptible tobacco varieties are planted in fields that have not been rotated well. This disease, characterized by black lesions on the roots and hypocotyl, ...

    Selection of resistance to multiple pathogens in tobacco assisted by markers and greenhouse screenings.

    MARTINEZ N.; MILLER R.D.; LI D.; WEINBERGER G.
    University of Kentucky, Dept of Plant and Soil Sciences, Lexington, KY, USA
    The use of molecular markers in combination with greenhouse screens provides an efficient method for identification of flue-cured and burley tobacco genotypes resistant to several diseases. The objective of this study was to compare the consistency of ...
