  • SummaryAfter inoculation of glasshouse-grown somaclones regenerated from apple leaf discs (cv. Greensleeves) 33% of 270 showed an increase in resistance to the fire blight pathogen Erwinia amylovora. In contrast only 21% produced less severe symptoms than parental material after inoculation of plants held in culture in vitro. Sixteen somaclones which showed the highest levels of fire blight resistance were tested intensively as both glasshouse-grown plants and as micropropagated plants in… CONTINUE READING
