Late blight resistance in wild potato species—Resources for future potato (Solanum tuberosum) breeding
Late blight remains the most devastating disease in potato cultivation. The best protection against this disease could be achieved by durably resistant cultivars, but these do not exist at present. To advance resistance breeding, the search for resistant wild potato species and the characterization of their resistance is important. There have recently been a number of new developments in this area. For this reason, all wild potato species known to the authors in which resistance has been found to date are listed in this article with their respective genes and QTL. Lastly, an overview is given, how these new resistance sources can be used for future resistance breeding.
