Resistance of watermelon cultivars to Fusarium wilt

Resistance of watermelon cultivars to Fusarium wilt

Plant Disease 65(10): 825-827

Several Citrullus lanatus varieties were grown in soil naturally infested with Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. niveum on land last planted to watermelon six years previously (less infested) and on land after six years of monoculture (heavily infested). Calhoun Gray, Smokylee and Summit were highly resistant, with <20% seedling wilt, and produced adequate yields even under heavy infestation.
