Potato virus Y (PVY) is responsible for the majority of seed potato lot rejections in North America. Some commercial cultivars and breeding lines have major genes for PVY resistance, but their use in North American breeding programs has been limited. Marker assisted selection of PVY resistance can increase the efficiency of identifying resistant plants and(More)
Potato virus Y (PVY) is the most important virus in North American seed potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) production. Planting virus-free minitubers in place of field-grown seed, which usually has a low PVY incidence, reduces initial PVY inoculum in the field. However, plants grown from minitubers are smaller and emerge later than those grown from conventional(More)
