NIAB EMR-China research unlocks strawberry disease resistance

NIAB EMR, in a joint UKā€“China research programme, has discovered several strains of the strawberry disease Verticillium wilt (Verticillium dahliae), belonging to two different groups, that act in very different ways. The results are already being used by plant breeders in the development of a new generation of wilt resistant varieties.
