Abstract

Not available – first paragraph follows: The most widely used plant disease control method has been the incorporation of single, usually dominant, genes for disease resistance into cultivated plants. In some cases, disease control also has been accomplished by withdrawal from plants of certain dominant alleles conferring vulnerability to attack by pathogens that produce specific toxins. By either approach, genetic resistance affords the only practical control strategy in most major crops.
