TYPES OF REGISTANCE
:Disease resistance that is controlled genetically by the presence of one, a few,many genes for resistance in the plant is known as true resistance. In trueresistance, the host and the pathogen are more or less incompatible with oneanother, either because of lack of chemical recognition between the host and thepathogen or because the host plant can defend itself against the pathogen.
There are two kinds of true resistance
: All plants have a certain, but not always the same, levelof possibly unspecific resistance that is effective against each of their pathogens.Such resistance is sometimes called partial, race nonspecific, general,quantitative, polygenic, adult-plant, field, or durable resistance, but in the past itwas referred to most commonly as horizontal resistance. It is also known asPartial, Quantitative, Polygenic resistance.
: Many plant varieties are quite resistant to some races of apathogen while they are susceptible to other races of the same pathogen knownas monogenic, qualitative, major gene, vertical or R gene resistance.
