THE BEHAVIOR OF A SUNFLOWER ASSORTMENT AT THE ATTACK OF THE MAIN PATHOGENS UNDER CONDITIONS FROM DIDACTIC STATION OF U.S.A.M.V.B. TIMIŞOARA PUBLISHEDAdrian Borcean, Dan Nicolae Manea, Simona Niţă
In the present paper are presented results for the year 2008 concerning behavior of an assortment of 32 sunflower lines from Monsanto on pathogen attack, in natural conditions at Didactic Station of Banat's University Of Agricultural Sciences And Veterinary Medicine Timişoara. It is well-known that the area where the experimental field was implemented is the target of a few sunflower endemic pathogens which produce crop losses every year, two of this are Phomopsis helianthi and Phoma macdonaldi. By the present paper we try to draw the attention to the lack of genetic material at the present hybrids assortment with vertical resistance to these pathogens. All this underline the importance of a new technology for sunflower, a technology which must bring some efficient measures to fight against these sunflower endemic pathogens.
