Downy mildew resistance in opium poppy: resistance sources, inheritance pattern, genetic variability and strategies for crop improvement

Abstract

Downy mildew (DM) caused by Peronospora arborescens is the most destructive disease of opium poppy which assumes considerable importance in India and other poppy growing countries. The present study was aimed at identification and evaluation of stable resistance sources of DM in opium poppy. Furthermore, genetic variability and inheritance pattern of DM… (More)
