Ty-3, a begomovirus resistance locus near the Tomato yellow leaf curl virus resistance locus Ty-1 on chromosome 6 of tomato
TLDR
A large S. chilense introgression spanning markers from C2_At2g39690 to T0834 in LA2779-derived advanced breeding lines resistant to both TYLCV and ToMoV is identified, suggesting the possible coexistence and linkage of resistance alleles at both Ty-1 and Ty-3 loci in these lines. Expand
Molecular Mapping of Ty-4, a New Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus Resistance Locus on Chromosome 3 of Tomato
TLDR
The PCR- based markers tightly linked to the Ty-4 locus as well as theTy-3 locus have been recently used in the breeding program for efficient selection of high-levels of begomovirus resistance and now allow for efficient breeding by marker-assisted selection. Expand
Recessive Resistance to Tomato yellow leaf curl virus from the Tomato Cultivar Tyking Is Located in the Same Region as Ty-5 on Chromosome 4
TLDR
To determine if this locus controls TYLCV resistance in Fla. 8753 and Fla. 344, appropriate segregating populations were analyzed using the Ty-5 marker, and results show that SlNAC1 cosegregates with a recessive allele derived from 'Tyking'. Expand
Mechanisms of resistance inLycopersicon germplasm to the whiteflyBemisia argentifolii
TLDR
Greenhouse studies suggest that multi-factor resistance exists in wild tomato germplasm and suggest that by combining genetically the observed chemical constituents of resistance into a single Germplasm, the resulting resistance may be more difficult for B. argentifolii to overcome. Expand
Color Mulches Influence Yield and Insect Pest Populations in Tomatoes
TLDR
It is proposed that, under high insect stress, mulches should be selected for their effect on insects in addition to their effects on soil temperature and plant morphology. Expand
Greenhouse and field screening of wildLycopersicon germplasm for resistance to the whiteflyBemisia argentifolii
TLDR
Thirty-two accessions of wild tomato germplasm were evaluated for resistance to the whitefly and the highest whitefly resistance was observed in Lycopersicon pennellii accessions LA 716, LA 1340 and LA 2560. Expand
Optimal foraging shapes host preference of a polyphagous leafminer
TLDR
This work has shown that optimal foraging by adults, or the quality of the host for adult performance, might also influence host choice. Expand
Identification of Quantitative Trait Loci Conferring Resistance to Bemisia tabaci in an F2 Population of Solanum lycopersicum × Solanum habrochaites Accession LA1777
TLDR
A selective genotyping analysis was used with 11resistant and 10susceptible plants to locate resistance genes by testing them with molecular markers spanning most of the tomato genome at about 10-cM intervals and markers in four regions were found to be associated with resistance. Expand
Repellency of ginger oil to Bemisia argentifolii (Homoptera: Aleyrodidae) on tomato.
TLDR
Ginger oil has potential as a protectant of tomato seedlings against B. argentifolii, but issues of phytotoxicity and coverage need to be addressed. Expand
