Chocolate spot is an important disease of faba bean (Vicia faba) caused by the necrotrophic fungus Botrytis fabae. The aims of this work were: i) to compare different methods of screening for resistance; ii) to assess the influence of the age of host tissue and temperature on this pathosystem. To this effect, a collection of 42 faba bean accessions was(More)
A collection consisting of 140 accessions of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) and 109 accessions of related wild species (Cicer spp.) was screened for resistance to chickpea rust (Uromyces ciceris-arietini (Grognot) Jacz. & Boyd). Varying levels of partial resistance were identified, based on a reduced disease severity and area under disease progress curve(More)

Faba bean (Vicia faba) production in Mediterranean and Near East agriculture is severely constrained by broomrape infection. The most widely distributed broomrape species affecting faba bean is Orobanche crenata, although O. foetida and Phelipanche aegyptiaca are of local importance. Only moderately resistant cultivars are available to farmers. Rizotrons(More)
