Indirect selection for resistance to Alectra vogelii (benth) infestation in cowpea (Vignaunguiculata (L) walp)
TLDR
A significance negative correlation was found between the Alectra emergency and infestation to yield and yield components and both yield components exhibited a weak r2 value implying that these components can only be used to supplement and not as a substitute to direct selection in breeding for resistance to A. vogelii.

Nature of resistance of cowpea Alectra vogelii infestation
TLDR
The results imply that introgression of a desirable trait in an elite genotype would involve careful crossing with a resistance genotype, accompanied by selection in the advanced population. Expand
