Control of potato pests with resistant plants



Control of potato pests with resistant plants



Memorias del curso sobre control integrado de plagas de papa: 117-124



Two main avenues of research pursued with the aim of achieving pest-resistant plants are reviewed: (1) use of glandular hairs and (2) use of glycoalkaloids, both found in tuberous wild species. The former character, although under genetic control, is strongly influenced by environment and is thus limited in its application as a general resistance mechanism.
