The oil palm is badly affected by basal stem rot (BSR) disease in Southeast Asia. BSR disease is caused by the fungus Ganoderma boninense, which is a major threat to oil palm compared with other Ganoderma spp. Molecular markers associated with BSR disease will accelerate the identification process of resistant breeding materials in screening of plants for tolerance to the disease at the nursery stage. In this study, 58 simple sequence repeat markers were utilized with three progeny types… CONTINUE READING
