The method hitherto used in Norway for testing for tuber resistance to late blight, inoculating newly harvested unwounded tubers, is described. Superficial wounding of the tubers prior to inoculation increased the level of infection. Tests on wounded and unwounded tubers ranged the cultivars in the same order, but the significance level was higher for wounded tubers. When the tubers were harvested 16 days before inoculation instead of the same day, unwounded tubers of susceptible genotypes were… CONTINUE READING
