Breeding for stress tolerance under tropical conditions in tomato and heading Chinese cabbage

Improved vegetable production in Asia Proceedings of a seminar held in Chiang Mai, Thailand, 21-23 October, 1986: 88-109

Breeding for stress tolerance under tropical conditions in tomato and heading Chinese cabbage

The subject is outlined with reference to the main constraints imposed by tropical environments, namely high temperatures and heavy rainfall leading to flooding. The genetic basis of the adaptation of tomatoes and Chinese cabbages to these conditions is considered, as is resistance in tomato to diseases (Pseudomonas solanacearum and tomato mosaic virus) and rootknot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.).
