Blackleg Resistance – New Classification System

May 11, 2020

Blackleg Resistance � New Classification System
  • the current R/MR/MS/S (resistant, moderately resistant, moderately susceptible, susceptible) ratings as a % of Westar will remain the same, refers to minor gene resistance
  • a label to identify the major resistance genes in the variety will be added i.e. Resistance A to Resistance P (see chart below). This is a voluntary label extension at this time.

e.g. Canterra CS2100 rating is “R – ACG”, which describes a resistant  variety with 3 resistance groups containing major resistance  genes Rlm1 (or LepR3), Rlm3 and RlmS, respectively

  • growers can proactively manage blackleg by rotating to a variety with a different letter(s), and therefore a different source of resistance

Soil sampling is carried out to analyze whether a soil has sufficient plant nutrients, to monitor changes in the soil properties, to determine how much additional fertilizer is needed to be applied in order to produce a given crop and it’s often used as a report card of how the year turned out with regards to yield and residual nutrients left in the soil. Our main goal is to understand the soil properties and how they affect plant growth and productivity of the field.
