  • Patent number: 11535861
    Abstract: The present invention relates to Solanum lycopersicum (S. lycopersicum) plants with resistance to Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus (TYLCV), powdery mildew (PM) and nematodes. According to the invention, the resistances are provided by coupling in cis on the same chromosome the OL4 gene conferring resistance to PM and nematodes and TY1 gene conferring resistance to TYLCV, without coupling the Mi-1 gene conferring resistance to nematodes in cis with said OL4 gene conferring resistance to PM and nematodes and TY1 gene conferring resistance to TYLCV. The genes can be present homozygously or heterozygously in the genome of the S. lycopersicum plants, and they confer resistance to TYLCV, PM and nematodes. The present invention also provides methods for making such plants, and to methods of detecting and/or selecting such plants.

  • Patent number: 11516979
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for conducting high-throughput and directed mutagenesis for sugarcane resistance to glyphosate by plasma. The method is as follows: sugarcane embryonic calli are irradiated by a plasma instrument under a sterile condition for mutagenesis, wherein the mutagenesis power is 140˜200 W, the discharging distance is 35˜45 mm, the mutagenesis time is 110˜140 s and the protective gas is nitrogen; buffering culture, moderate/high concentration of glyphosate stress screening, differentiation into seedlings, glyphosate stress screening of bottle seedlings and stress screening via spraying glyphosate on the leave surfaces of potted plants are conducted for the treated calli. The present invention has the advantages of safe operation, simplicity, practicability, high handling capacity, low contamination, and due to implementation of directed stress screening, high screening efficiency, decreased subsequent screening workload and visual identification of resistant mutant strains.

  • Patent number: 11503792
    Abstract: Hybrid tomato variety ‘H2009’ is described. The tomato variety is a ground-culture hybrid processing tomato variety suitable for machine harvest and is adaptable to humid climactic conditions of regions such as the Northeastern United States and Italy. It is a full season variety with resistance to verticillium wilt race 1, fusarium wilt races 1 and 2, root knot nematode, bacterial spot, bacterial canker and early blight. The superior vine health and extended field storage make it particularly valuable variety for production regions with high levels of rain that can promote bacterial and fungal diseases and delay field harvest.

  • Patent number: 11503793
    Abstract: Hybrid tomato variety ‘H2012’ is described. The tomato variety is a ground-culture hybrid processing tomato variety suitable for machine harvest and is adaptable to the arid climactic conditions of regions such as California, USA, and Extremadura, Spain. It is a main season variety with resistance to verticillium wilt race 1, fusarium wilt races 1, 2, and 3, root knot nematode, and tomato spotted wilt virus. While the high viscosity of its processed juice make fruit of ‘H2012’ particularly valuable for production of sauces and paste, its uniform and attractive fruit are also valuable for whole-pack and peel/dice uses. The combination of extended field storage of the fruit with its resistance to fusarium wilt race 3 and tomato spotted wilt virus make it valuable to the tomato processing industry.
