The effect of a thrips resistance QTL in different Capsicum backgrounds
Thrips are a worldwide threat to Capsicum because they damage fruits, flowers and leaves directly by feeding, and indirectly by vectoring tospoviruses such as tomato spotted wilt virus. Therefore, growers would benefit from thrips-resistant varieties. Previously, a quantitative trait locus (QTL) that provides resistance to Frankliniella occidentalis has been identified. Here we explore the potential of this QTL for breeding thrips-resistant varieties by studying its effect on two thrips speciesdoi:10.1007/s10681-020-02725-4 fatcat:asvflkuu5fdgbpzqp7aebj245y
