The fungal disease cercospora leaf spot CLS (Cercospora zonata) has affected major faba bean (Vicia faba) production regions in southern Australian in the last several years. This study offers the first report of sources of resistance to CLS in faba bean and describes techniques to evaluate resistance to C. zonata in faba bean genotypes within a controlled environment. The method was rapid (43 days), repeatable (R 2 > 0.74) and demonstrated positive correlations (R 2 > 0.45–0.80) to data… CONTINUE READING
