Resistance to bacterial wilt of potatoes in Colombian clones ofSolanum Phureja

  • H. David Thurston
  • J. Carlos Lozano T.


Of 1,061 clones ofSolatium tuberosum, S. andigenum, S. phureja, wild species and interspecific hybrids tested in the greenhouse against race 3 ofPseudomonas solanacearum E.F.S., six clones of S.phureja showed a high degree of resistance, which was maintained during testing of the resistant clones at different temperatures (20, 25 and 30 C) in growth cabinets and against races 1 and 2 in the greenhouse.

Se inocularon 1061 clones deS. tuberosum, S. andigenum, S. phureja, híbridos, y algunas especies silvestres con la raza 3 de la bacteriaPseudomonas solanacearum E. F. Sm. Seis clones deS. phureja mostraron un alto grado de resistencia a ésta raza. de la bacterium, lo mismo que a las razas 1 y 2. Al probar dichos clones con la raza 3 a temperaturas de 20, 25 y 30 C., se encontró que tal resistencia continuaba siendo alta.
