Program 3: Towards Effective Control of Blackleg of Canola: Identification of novel sources of blackleg resistance genes

The use of genetic resistance is a major strategy for minimising blackleg disease in canola. It is necessary to identify novel sources of resistance to blackleg disease for incorporation into Australian breeding programs.

The outcome of this work will be new genetic material and markers for blackleg resistance being available to canola breeding companies, thereby ensuring protection against blackleg disease and the long term sustainability of the canola industry in Australia.
