New sources of resistance to Sclerotinia sclerotiorum for crucifer crops – M.B. Uloth, M.P. You, P.M. Finnegan, S.S. Banga, S.K. Banga, P.S. Sandhu, H. Yi, P.A. Salisbury, and M.J. Barbetti,- Field Crops Research 2013

Summary: Effective host resistance to S. sclerotiorum is urgently needed if Sclerotinia rot is to be successfully managed across diverse oilseed, forage and vegetable crucifer crops worldwide. While this study highlighted individual genotypes that offer great potential for improving resistance to Sclerotinia rot in commercial cruciferous crops, it also demonstrated that assessment of the overall value of a species is ...

Susceptibility of Brassicaceous Plants to Feeding by Flea Beetles, Phyllotreta spp. (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) – J. Soroka and L. Grenkow – Journal of Economic Entomology 2013

Summary: Multiple laboratory and field feeding bioassays were conducted to determine the susceptibility of a wide range of crucifer species, cultivars, and accessions to feeding by flea beetles with the goal of discovering sources of resistant germplasm. The results indicate possible sources of resistance to Phyllotreta flea beetles, while highlighting the complicated roles that glucosinolates may play in Phyllotreta host ...

Effects of crop rotations and tillage on Pratylenchus spp. in the semiarid Pacific Northwest United States – R.W. Smiley, S. Machado, J.A. Gourlie, L.C. Pritchett, G.P. Yan, and E.E. Jacobsen – Plant Disease 2013

Summary: There is interest in converting rainfed cropping systems in the Pacific Northwest from a 2-year rotation of winter wheat and cultivated fallow to direct-seed (no-till) systems that include chemical fallow, spring cereals, and food legume and brassica crops. The density of Pratylenchus spp. was greater in cultivated than chemical fallow, became greater with increasing frequency of host crops, and ...

Camalexin induction in intertribal somatic hybrids between Camelina sativa and rapid-cycling Brassica oleracea – M. A. Sigareva and E. D. Earle – Theoretical and Applied Genetics 1999

Summary: Camelina sativa, a wild relative of Brassica crops, is virtually immune to blackspot disease caused by Alternaria brassicicola. Intertribal somatic hybrids were produced between C. sativa and rapid-cycling Brassica oleracea as a step toward the transfer of resistance to this disease into Brassica vegetable crops. Resistance was correlated with the induction of high levels of the phytoalexin camalexin 48h ...

Brassica coenospecies: a rich reservoir for genetic resistance to leaf spot caused by Alternaria brassicae – G. Sharma, V. Dinesh Kumar, A. Haque, S.R. Bhat, Shyam Prakash, and V.L. Chopra – Euphytica 2002

Summary: Development of leaf spot resistant mustard cultivars is a relevant objective in view of heavy crop losses caused by this pathogen. Thirty-eight species belonging to 9 genera, including cultivated and wild allies, of the genus Brassica were evaluated under epiphytotic conditions for two years. Eight species (Brassica desnottesii, Camelina sativa, Coincya pseuderucastrum, Diplotaxis berthautii, D. catholica, D. cretacea, D. ...

Diseases of Camelina saliva (false flax) – G. Séguin-Swartz, C. Eynck, R.K. Gugel, S.E. Strelkov, C.Y. Olivier, J.L. Li, H. Klein-Gebbinck, H. Borhan, C.D. Caldwell, and K.C. Falk – Canadian Journal of Plant Pathology 2009

Summary: A review of the literature indicates that C. sativa is highly resistant to alternaria black spot and blackleg of crucifers. Genotypes resistant to sclerotinia stem rot, brown girdling root rot, and downy mildew can be found among C. sativa accessions, raising the possibility of developing cultivars resistant to these diseases. However, C. sativa is susceptible to clubroot, white rust, ...
