Five dihaploid Solanum tuberosum genotypes, encompassing different levels of polygenically inherited resistance to potato late blight disease (Phytophthora infestans (Mont.) de Bary) in foliage and tubers, were used in four intraspecific protoplast fusion combinations. Vigorous growing putative hybrid calli were selected four weeks after electrofusion. Intact plants were regenerated from 6% of the selected calli. Verification of hybridity was accomplished by use of RAPD analysis which revealed… CONTINUE READING
