One dominant gene conferring the resistance to the leafminer, Liriomyza trifolii(Burgess) Diptera: Agromyzidae in melon (Cucumis melo L.)


The line Nantais Oblong, a melon of Charentais type, was shown to be a source of resistance by antibiosis to the leafminer, Liriomyza trifolii (Burgess), Diptera, Agromyzidae. We studied the genetic control of this resistance in F2 and back-cross progenies from the cross between Nantais Oblong and Védrantais, a Charentais line susceptible to the leafminer… (More)
