Abstract

Evaluation in Brazil of potato clones resistant to bacterial wilt in the Philippines.

Abstract

Potato clones were evaluated for their resistance to races 1 and 3 of Ralstonia solanacearum. There were 3 main clusters regarding levels of resistance and 6 clones (BP88166-2, 800966, BP88068-3, BP88166-5, BP88074-1 and 382303-1) were clustered together as a resistant cluster. Clones 384558-1 and 381064-2 were very susceptible to disease. The remainder of the clones were susceptible.
