This study aimed to identify Capsicum genotypes with resistance to bacterial spot (BS), anthracnose and Pepper yellow mosaic virus (PepYMV). Fifty-four genotypes of Capsicum spp were evaluated. Resistance reaction against BS was evaluated using three replicates, testing hypersensitivity and quantitative resistance in leaves. After evaluation, inoculated leaves were detached from the plants, ... more
Genotype x environment interaction and stability of soybean cultivars for vegetative-stage characters.
In order to obtain the certificate of cultivar protection, it is necessary to prove its distinctiveness, homogeneity, and stability. Currently, there are 37 descriptors for differentiating soybeans cultivars. However, they are still not enough and, as a result, it is necessary to create, identify, and evaluate new descriptors. This study was aimed at evaluating the genotypic and environment ... more
Breeding programs currently use statistical analysis to assist in the identification of superior genotypes at various stages of a cultivar's development. Differently from these analyses, the computational intelligence approach has been little explored in genetic improvement of cotton. Thus, this study was carried out with the objective of presenting the use of artificial neural networks as ... more
Molecular identification of variety purity in a cotton hybrid with unknown parentage using DNA-SSR markers.
Molecular identification of hybrid purity is difficult in regional trials of cotton varieties and hybrid trials. In particular, the molecular detection of hybrid purity has not yet been reported in the case of unknown parentage. In this study, we screened 5000 pairs of primers and chose 17 pairs of core simple sequence repeat (SSR) primers to determine the F1 purity of Han6402. The results ... more
This study aimed at identifying and selecting through partial diallel analysis, segregating populations of cowpea resistant to Macrophomina phaseolina and Thanatephorus cucumeris, based on the evaluation of general (GCA) and specific combining ability (SCA), involved in the genetic control of resistance. For this reason, 19 grouped cowpea genotypes, considering the resistance to these ... more
Resistance to Helicoverpa armigera mediated by zingiberene and glandular trichomes in tomatoes for industrial processing
The Helicoverpa armigera (Hübner) is a recent pest in Brazil, causing losses in tomato production in the Espírito Santo and Goiás states, in Brazil. A promising alternative to control this insect pest is the development of resistent tomato varieties. The breeding programs have aimed to introduce alleles of resistance present in the wild tomato accessions in the ... more
The ability to avoid self-pollination is a trait that evolved as a manner of reducing the deleterious effects of inbreeding in various allogamous plant species, including Coffea canephora. The aim of this study was to perform directed hybridizations to characterize the compatibility groups of superior C. canephora clones, since plant selection can reduce ... more
Genetic variability among pepper genotypes is essential in obtaining hybrid combinations with greater heterotic effect and in obtaining superior strains. This work’s goal was to evaluate the genetic diversity between accessions of Capsicum annuum L., indicating the selection of promising individuals for ornamental purposes. The experiment was carried out in at the ... more
Selection of resistance sources to common bean anthracnose by field phenotyping and DNA marker-assisted screening
The main goal of this work was to select resistance sources to common bean anthracnose by field phenotyping and DNA marker-assisted screening. Fifty-five common bean genotypes, including differential varieties, characterized resistance sources, elite lines, cultivars and controls, were evaluated in a field inoculation trial and screened with SCAR markers linked to ... more
We examined the general and specific combining abilities of common bean cultivars and varieties and tested promising hybrid combinations for the development of productive strains. Two cultivars (IPR Uirapuru and IPR Campos Gerais) and five local varieties (BGU-1, BGU-7, BGU-13, BGU-25 and BGU-36) were planted in a full diallel cross. Treatments were assessed based ... more
