Our Discovery Field Days

Battle against Bremia lactucae

Bremia lactucae (downy mildew) occurs worldwide and is a major problem for both the yield and the quality of cultivated lettuce. This downy mildew is genetically very variable and is notorious for its ability to develop new isolates or physios and bypass incrossed resistances in existing varieties. Finding a suitable resistance to Bremia lactucae is a necessity and an ongoing process. Every time a new physio emerges a new genetic answer must be found and crossed into new varieties. Of course by maintaining all the other positive characteristics a grower expects from varieties.

Bremia lactucae during the Discovery Field Days

Enza Zaden is strongly committed to breed resistant varieties that add value to the entire chain, from growers to consumers. We offer a wide range of good varieties with excellent field performance, outstanding post-harvest and high levels of Bremia resistance. However, developing a resistant variety is a complex process in which researchers and breeders work closely together.
