Field pea (Pisum sativum L.) is a cool-season grain legume that is cultivated world-wide for both human consumption and stock-feed purposes. Enhancement of genetic and genomic resources for field pea will permit improved understanding of the control of traits relevant to crop productivity and quality. Advances in second-generation sequencing and associated(More)
Field pea (Pisum sativum L.) is a grain legume crop that is cultivated for either human or livestock consumption. Development of varieties adapted to damaging abiotic and biotic stresses is a major objective for field pea breeding. Bacterial blight is a serious disease caused by the pathogenic agents Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae and Pseudomonas(More)
Field pea (Pisum sativum L.) is an important grain legume consumed both as human food and animal feed. However, productivity in low rainfall regions can be significantly reduced by inferior soils containing high levels of boron and/or salinity. Furthermore, powdery mildew (PM) (Erysiphe pisi) disease also causes significant yield loss in warmer regions.(More)
