In Peurto Rico, Genotypes of Cucurbita moschata with a range of susceptibility were inoculated with Papaya ringspot virus and Zucchini yellow mosaic virus and evaluated in the greenhouse and field.
Linda Wessel Beaver shares some details about breeding tropical squash for virus resistance in the first CucCAP grant with the Culinary Breeding Network’s Winter Squash Week.
CucCAP scientists and other researchers authored reports in the 2019 Cucurbit Genetics Cooperative (CGC) report which was published in September 2020.
Final Progress Report for the CucCAP#1 Squash Team: Michael Mazourek (Cornell University), Linda Wessel-Beaver (University of Puerto Rico), Angela Linares (University of Puerto Rico), and Chris Smart (Cornell University).
