The main diseases of sunflower which can be controlled by major genes are downy mildew, broomrape, rust and Verticillium wilt, whereas the crop shows quantitative resistance to Sclerotinia rots and wilt, phomopsis stem canker, Phoma premature ripening and black stem and Alternaria. Over the past 40 ...

Yield and quality losses due to disease are major factors limiting crop productivity; thus breeding for disease resistance is a primary goal for many plant breeding programmes. Unfortunately, specific sources of resistance are not always available. In cases where sources of genetic resistance are...

In wild sunflower germplasm, considerable variability is available for disease and insect pest resistance or tolerance of abiotic stresses like drought and salinity. In addition, fatty acid composition and protein quality can be modified by including wild species in the breeding programme....

The disease of over-riding importance in Brazil is South American leaf blight (Microcyclus ulei). With the exception of leaf wither and black stripe caused by Phytophthora palmivora in Bahia and possibly target leaf spot (Thanatephorus cucumeris) in Manaus, other diseases are of minor importance...

Powdery mildew of barley, caused by Erysiphe graminis DC. f.sp. hordei Marchal, has long been recognised as the most important fungal disease of barley foliage. Consequently, intensive and world-wide programmes of research and breeding for resistance have been developed. These have been reviewed by ...
