Abstract

Maize dwarf mosaic virus (MDMV), an economically serious viral disease of sweet corn (Zea mays L.) in the United States and other countries of the world, is transmitted primarily by aphid vectors. Early infection by the virus in sweet com can cause stunted growth, delayed maturity, reduced yield, and poor ear quality (11). To provide public and private breeders with germplasm to help alleviate this problem, the Illinois Agricultural Experiment Station announces the release of nine sugary (su) sweet corn inbreds with improved resistance to maize dwarf mosaic virus. These newly developed inbreds have been designated IL793a, IL794a, IL795a, IL796a, IL796b, IL797a, IL798a, IL799b, and IL800a.

Abstract

Maize dwarf mosaic (MDM) is an economically serious viral disease of sweet corn (Zea mays L.) in the United States. Early infection by the virus in sweet com can cause stunted growth, delayed maturity, reduced yield, and poor ear quality (5). To aid in alleviating this problem, the Illinois Agricultural Experiment Station announces the release of 8 lines of sweet com germplasm homozygous for the sugary (su) gene with improved resistance to maize dwarf mosaic virus (MDMV). These new lines have been designated: ILM6161a, lLM6222a, ILM6222b, ILM6222c, ILM6222d, ILM6222e, ILM6223a, and ILM6223b.
