Resistance in Tomato to Six Anthracnose Fungi. T. H. Barksdale, Research Plant Pathologist, Plant Science Research Division, ARS, USDA, Plant Industry Station, Beltsville, Maryland 20705; Phytopathology 62:660-663. Accepted for publication 24 January 1972. DOI: 10.1094/Phyto-62-660.

Resistance to tomato anthracnose, caused by Colletotrichum coccodes, has previously been reported in the small-fruited introduction P.I. 272636. This line, and lines derived from the cross of it with the tomato cultivar Roma, are also shown in this paper to be resistant to five other fungi that can cause anthracnose lesions on tomato fruit: C. dematium and C. gloeosporioides isolated from tomato, C. fragariae from strawberry, C. destructivum from tobacco, and Glomerella cingulata from apples.
