Breeding Snap Beans for Multiple Disease Resistance and Temperature Stress Tolerance
Jahn, Molly Kyle; Moriarty, George
In 1997, our primary emphasis was first, on advancing BCF1 and F2s from Mike Dickson's program that combined white mold resistance with root rot or brown spot resistance or heat tolerance. Second, we conducted a field screen for white mold resistance during the summer, then trialing that material for WM resistance in the field. Third, we worked to set priorities and gather genetic and other resources to continue snap bean breeding at Cornell.
