P. brassicae populations continue to evolve, therefore outsourcing genetic resistance from other Brassicas could broaden the resistance to clubroot in canola.
Develop canola lines that carry the clubroot resistance gene of rutabaga, resulting in clubroot resistant hybrid canola cultivars.
This section will be updated upon completion of the project.
The clubroot resistant lines and cultivars developed through this project will broaden the genetic base of the crop, and the molecular markers will increase the efficiency of canola breeding programs by reducing the turn-around time for cultivar development.
