Mackie (1929) found that resistance in an unspecified variety was controlled by a single recessive gene. Riddle and Briggs (1950) identified a single dominant gene conferring resistance in La Mesita, which was also present with a recessive gene in Trebi and Cal jfornia 1311 (= Modoc), and with one… CONTINUE READING
