Catalogue: Ground Cover
Black spot resistance in field peas advanced.. Bonnie Hargreaves was awarded a GRDC undergraduate honours scholarship to investigate black spot in field peas to better understand how to breed for resistance.. Individual plants were found with resistance to black spot and early flowering times suitable for southern Australia: " the correlation between the two traits indicated that later flowering times meant better resistance to black spot," she says...

Crop Updates is a partnership between the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia and the Grains Research & Development Corporation 36.. We report results from the advanced yield trials conducted at Bolgart, Dalwallinu, Pingrup and Merredin and the black spot resistance evaluated at Medina in 2008... With the availability of more resistant varieties there are prospects of renewed interest in the crop, but the new resistant varieties are poorly adapted to Western Australia and their seed quality does not match the earlier releases (Sona and Heera) that are unfortunately very susceptible to ascochyta blight...

Cycle 2 F2 progeny were assessed for black spot resistance and stem strength in the winter of 2004, together with Cycle 2 parents and the original parents in a black spot nursery to measure the effectiveness of recurrent selection over two cycles... Heritability for both traits was moderate, with broadsense heritability measured at 43% for leaf disease and 39% for stem strength... Of six varieties evaluated in this study, there was significant variation among varieties in stem strength - as measured by force and flexion - and significant variation among varieties in diameter and compressed stem thickness...
