Invasive Species Compendium

Detailed coverage of invasive species threatening livelihoods and the environment worldwide

Abstract

Cultivars adopted for different zones resistant to pathogens.

Abstract

Information is considered on crop losses caused by various diseases including phytophthorosis [Phytophthora infestans], Macrosporium [Pleospora], potato cancer [Synchytrium endobioticum], rhizoctoniose [Rhizoctonia solani], Phoma exigua, dry rot [Fusarium], Alternaria, scab [Streptomyces scabiei], as well as bacterial and virus pathogens in the Novosibirsk region, Siberia, Russia. The importance of growing disease resistant cultivars to avoid significant crop losses is discussed. Data are tabulated on damage of stored potato of cultivars Lugovskoĭ, Lina, Nevskiĭ, Pushkinets, Svitanok kievskiĭ and Berlikhingen grown in the Novosibirsk region during 1990-2000. Data are tabulated on resistance to pathogens and nematodes [Globodera rostochiensis] of 8 cultivars adopted, and 14 cultivars popular and promising for the conditions of the Novosibirsk region. Information is included on high, relative and complex resistance of various cultivars to fungal, bacterial and virus diseases.
