A. R. Dunn, H. W. Lange, and C. D. Smart

January 2014

Research

Host resistance is an effective management strategy for the root and crown rot phase of Phytophthora blight, and a number of commercially-available pepper cultivars are described by the supplier as intermediately resistant. The objective of this study was to identify commercially available bell pepper cultivars that show high levels of resistance to an isolate of P. capsici in upstate New York.
