A method of assessing potato seedling progenies for resistance to the white potato cyst nematode

  • M. S. Phillips
Short Communication

Summary

The resistance expressed by progenies of potato seedlings to the white potato cyst nematode (Globodera pallida) has been assessed on bulk sowings of seedlings and on individual plants raised from tubers, and a positive correlation between the seedling and plant tests has been established. The use of such a seedling test as an addition to other methods of screening is discussed.
