Abstract:

The most radical method of controlling the Verticillium wilt of cotton is the development of its resistant varieties. However, the selection of resistant forms of cotton against the infectious background is labor-consuming and little efficient. Considering that this evaluation should constitute the final stage of the work, we have set ourselves the task to develop accelerated methods for the primary evaluation of resistance of the cotton plant to wilt.
