A QTL for thrips resistance on pepper chromosome 6 was identified and validated. This QTL affects thrips larval development and explains 50 % of the variation. Thrips is one of the most damaging pests in pepper (Capsicum). Resistance to thrips was identified in Capsicum annuum. This study was aimed at the elucidation of the genetic background of thrips(More)
Cabbage root flies (Delia radicum) are a major threat to cabbage production in Western Europe and North America. Host plant resistance is the most promising option in controlling cabbage root fly damage. In a no-choice field test, we evaluated 94 accessions belonging to 16 Brassica-species for antibiosis resistance against the larvae. Thirteen accessions(More)
