Identification of RAPDs associated with resistance to lethal yellowing of the coconut (Cocos nucifera L.) palm


, : Identification of RAPDs associated with resistance to lethal yellowing of the coconut (Cocos nucifera L.) palm. Scientia Horticulturae 98(3): 257-263

Lethal yellowing (LY) is a disease of phytoplasma etiology that has devastated coconut (Cocos nucifera L.) cultivation for over a century. The only effective means for controlling LY is replanting with resistant germplasm. Breeding coconuts for any desirable traits is hindered by the long generation time, low multiplication rate, and ineffective clonal propagation of this crop.

Experiments were done during summer in the tropic...
