GenotypexEnvironment Interaction for Resistance to Purple Blotch (Alternaria porri L. (Ellis) Cif.) in Onion (Allium cepa L.) in Nigeria
L. Abubakar and S.G. Ado

Abstract:
Five onion cultivars were crossed in a diallel and their progenies evaluated at Sokoto and Talata Mafara, during the 2004/2005 and 2005/2006 seasons. Thirty milliliter of 10-1 cfu of spore suspension of Alternaria porri was poured into each plot. Combined analysis indicated that location, recorded highly significant mean squares (p<0.01) for disease incidence, fresh and cured bulb yields. Genotype recorded highly significant (p<0.01) mean squares for all characters. Genotypexlocation interactions recorded highly significant (p<0.01) mean squares for disease incidence and severity and fresh and cured bulb yields.
