Biotic Stress Tolerance

Biotic stress tolerance reduces costs due to use of pesticides as well as soil and water pollution. Evogene is currently focusing on three programs for developing pest-resistant crops: soybeans resistant to cyst nematodes, a soil parasite which attacks the roots of developing plants and is one of the most yield limiting pests of soybean; soybeans resistant to soybean rust, one of the most devastating fungal diseases in soybean and bananas displaying resistance to Black Leaf Streak Disease (also known as Black Sigatoka), the most costly and damaging foliar disease to the export-banana industry.
