  Evaluation of a Potato Selection with Natural Resistance to the Colorado Potato Beetle 2002

Guy Bernard1

Abstract: A new potato selection code-named Zoe was evaluated in commercial fields at two different locations during the summer of 2002 and under different fertility regimes. When challenged with high larval populations of Colorado Potato Beetles, Zoe did not demonstrate any more natural resistance to beetle infestation than did other potato cultivars.
