2014 Verticillium Wilt resistance of cotton germplasm


Objectives of Research:
The overall objective of this research was to identify and utilize field screening locations with a moderate to high level of sustained Verticillium wilt inoculum to provide a location for field screening of cotton germplasm of interest in CA Cotton production. The aim of the work is to utilize locations with a Verticillium wilt population for field screenings to identify relative susceptibility of newer commercial varieties of interest for CA Cotton production, and to then screen experimentals from both commercial breeders or seed companies plus those from USDA-ARS or other public breeding programs…
