  • Downy mildew, a foliar disease caused by the oomycete Pseudoperonospora cubensis (Berk. and Curt.) Rostov. is one of the most destructive diseases of cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.). Moderately resistant cultivars are available, but yield losses are high without the use of fungicides. Higher levels of resistance are needed to reduce the need for fungicides. The objective of this study was to identify new sources of resistance to downy mildew among Plant Introduction accessions from the U.S… CONTINUE READING
