- ... The production of cultivated peanut, an important agronomic crop throughout the United States and the world, is consistently threatened by various diseases and pests. Sclerotinia minor Jagger (S. minor), the causal agent of Sclerotinia blight, is a major threat to peanut production in the Southwestern US, Virginia and North Carolina. Although information on the variability of morphological traits ...

- ... A new resistance (R) gene to powdery mildew has been identified and characterized in a population derived from the wild potato species, Solanum neorossii under natural infection in the greenhouse. The segregation of resistance has revealed that this R gene is controlled by a single monogenic and dominant gene designated Rpm-nrs1. Analysis of the DNA sequence on an internal transcribed spacer (ITS) ...
