    Black shank resistance and agronomic performance of flue-cured tobacco lines and hybrids carrying the introgressed Nicotiana rustica region, Wz

    DRAKE-STOWE K.; MOORE J.M.; BRETR P.; FORTNUM B.A.; PETERSON P.; LEWIS R.S.
    Campus Box 7620, Crop Science Department, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC 27695, USA
    Black shank is usually the most important disease affecting tobacco production in the U.S. Genetic variability is needed that can affect resistance to multiple races of the black shank pathogen and that can be combined into cultivars that also provide ...
