Scab, caused by the fungus Venturia inaequalis, is one of the most important diseases of apple (Malus x domestica). The major resistance gene, Vf, has been widely used in apple breeding programs, but two new races of the fungus (races 6 and 7) are able to overcome this gene. A mapped F1 progeny derived from a cross between the cultivars Prima and Fiesta has bee n inoculated with two monoconidial strains of race 6. These strains originated from sporulating leaves of 'Prima' and a descendant of… CONTINUE READING
