The article reports on the launch of nutrient-rich nematode resistant carrots in the U.S. It reveals that the project is moving nematode resistant carrots into mainstream production and also improving nutritional value of the plant. In addition, the inheritance and genetic map location of resistance genes is being determined, and molecular markers are being developed to facilitate incorporation of resistance genes by indirect selection.
