Variation in Resistance of Camelina (Camelina sativa [L.] Crtz.) to Downy Mildew (Peronospora camelinae Gäum.) – J. Vollmann, S. Steinkellner, and J. Glauninger – Journal of Phytopathology 2001
Summary: An important low-input feature of camelina is its high level of resistance against plant diseases, which may partly be due to the production of antimicrobially efficient phytoalexins. In Central European countries such as Austria, downy mildew (Peronospora camelinae) is the only disease of camelina which has been found repeatedly, whereas other diseases and pests have been observed only occasionally. Therefore, the genotypic variation of downy mildew incidence was evaluated in two camelina field experiments carried out within a breeding program.
