Resistance of spinach cultivar to race 4 of Peronospora spinaciae Laubert.

Abstract

Spinach varieties (13 commercial cultivars and 4 new lines) were tested for resistance to P. spinaciae [P. farinosa f.sp. spinaciae] race 4. The new lines Konbatto, Hokushu, Jhoka and NSP-901 were resistant but the commercial varieties were susceptible.
