The potato cyst nematodes (PCN) Globodera rostochiensis and G. pallida are among the most important pests causing significant yield loss in potato production. Cultivating resistant cultivars of potato is the most effective and environmentally safe method for protecting potato crops against nematodes. However, widespread cultivation of cultivars resistant to G. rostochiensis can affect the reproduction of G. pallida. Therefore, breeding for resistance to nematodes remains among the major aims of… Expand

Evaluation of Potato Cultivars and Breeding Lines for Resistance to Globodera Rostochiensis and Globodera Pallida
This report is focused on a description of resistance assessment procedure of breeding lines and varieties of potato to PCN and on comparison of biological and molecular methods of resistance evaluation. Expand
WildSolanum species as resistance sources against different pathogens of potato
It is demonstrated that within the gene pool ofolanum species, still numerous but in part unexploited resistances are available which could be favourably used in potato breeding. Expand
Mapping QTLs for resistance to the cyst nematode Globodera pallida derived from the wild potato species Solanum vernei
There is evidence that one of the AFLPs detected by BSA appears to be specific to an introgressed segment of DNA from S. vernei, which can be used to detect the presence of the QTL in diploid and tetraploid potato germplasm. Expand
Genetical dissection of H3-mediated polygenic PCN resistance in a heterozygous autotetraploid potato population
Potato Cyst Nematodes (PCN) currently represent a serious threat to potato cultivation. However, many sources of resistance are known amongst primitive and wild relatives of cultivated potato,Expand
Resistance to potato cyst-nematodes in tuber-bearing Solanum species and its geographical distribution
Resistance to potato cyst-nematodes is predominantly found in some 17 species belonging to the series Tuberosa which have their geographical distribution mainly in the Andes. Expand
The importance of wild potato species resistant to the potato cyst nematode, Globodera pallida, pathotypes P4A and P5A, in potato breeding. I. Resistance studies
Seven wild diploid potato species, Series Tuberosa, representing 1023 clones were screened for resistance to the potato cyst nematode, Globodera pallida, and high frequencies of resistance to P4A and P5A were found in progenies of these and other resistant species with cultivated potatoes. Expand
Investigation of resistance specificity amongst fifteen wild Solanum species to a range of Globodera pallida and G. rostochiensis populations
The breadth of resistance to populations of the potato cyst nematodes, Globodera pallida and G. rostochiensis, which differed both in virulence level and country of origin, was investigated in 15Expand
Mapping the H2 resistance effective against Globodera pallida pathotype Pa1 in tetraploid potato
The H2 resistance gene, introduced into cultivated potatoes from the wild diploid species Solanum multidissectum, confers a high level of resistance to the Pa1 pathotype of the potato cyst nematode Globodera pallida. Expand
Resistance quantitative trait loci originating from Solanum sparsipilum act independently on the sex ratio of Globodera pallida and together for developing a necrotic reaction.
It is demonstrated that potato clones carrying both QTL showed a strong necrotic reaction in roots infected by nematodes, while no such reaction was observed in clones carrying a single QTL, underlines the importance to introgress together GpaV(s)spl and GpaXI(s),spl into potato cultivars, in order to reduce the density of this quarantine pest in soil and to decrease the risk of selecting overcoming G. pallida subpopulations.

First Report of the Pale Potato Cyst Nematode Globodera pallida from Slovenia.
This case demonstrates that ware potato may pose a serious risk for the introduction of such pests, and should be therefore subjected to more intensive phytosanitary inspection. Expand
