Scab resistance is one of the most important goals of apple breeding, typically achieved by time-consuming and expensive conventional breeding techniques. Cisgenesis, which is the genetic modification of a recipient organism with genes from a crossable—sexually compatible—organism, is a promising tool for plant breeding to develop disease resistance in a(More)
The use of hyperspectral approaches for early detection of plant stress caused by Venturia inaequalis (apple scab) was investigated to move towards more efficient and reduced application of pesticides, fertilizers or other crop management treatments in apple orchards. Apple leaves of the resistant cultivar, Rewena and the susceptible cultivar, Braeburn,(More)
The potential yield of (capital)-intensive multi-annual crops (e.g., fruit) is seldom harvested in reality. A targeted monitoring and modelling of the growth processes in such agricultural production systems could enable an early detection and treatment of production limiting factors, thereby opti-mising yield. In Belgium, as in all temperate regions, scab(More)
