Effects of Host Resistance on Second-stage Juveniles and Adult Males of Globodera rostochiensis
AbstractPotato cultivars Katahdin (susceptible) and Rosa (resistant) were exposed to infective second-stage juveniles (J2) of Globodera rostochiensis for varying periods of time, after which root systems were washed and plants were placed in Hoagland's solution to assess J2 egression and male emergence. After transfer to liquid culture, many J2 egressed from both cultivars, but significantly more egressed from the resistant Rosa than from Katahdin. Juveniles that egressed from Rosa invaded a second host, resistant or susceptible, in significantly fewer numbers than did juveniles that egressed from Katahdin. Also, significantly fewer males developed in and emerged from resistant host roots, relative to susceptible ones. These effects of resistance may be an important component of the tolerance to invasion by G. rostochiensis exhibited by Rosa. Key words: Globodera rostochiensis, host resistance, male development, juvenile invasion, potato, Solanum tuberosum.
