GRAVINA, Geraldo de Amaral; MARTINS FILHO, Sebastião; SEDIYAMA, Carlos Sigueyuki  and  CRUZ, Cosme Damião. Genetic parameters of soybean resistance to Cercospora sojina. Pesq. agropec. bras. [online]. 2004, vol.39, n.7, pp.653-659. ISSN 1678-3921.

The inheritance of soybean resistance to Cercospora sojina Hara was studied based on genetic parameters estimated by the analysis of means and variances of a multivariate index. The crosses between two resistant cultivars, Paraná (P) and Uberaba (U), with a susceptible, Bossier (B), were used. The parents and F1, F2, BCR and BCS generations from each cross were evaluated on five characteristics associated to the disease: visually evaluated infection degree; lesion mean diameter; percentage of lesioned leaf area; number of lesions per square centimeter; and disease index. A multivariate index previously established was applied to the data of the generation analyses. The additive genetic effect was the most important in the determination of the characters related to the resistance of soybean to C. sojina. On both crosses (PxB and UxB) at least one kind of epistatic interaction (aa, ad and dd) was significant and the additive-dominant-epistatic model was more adequate to describe the resistance of soybean to C. sojina.

Keywords : Glycine max; canonical variables; joint scaling test; multivariate index.
