The Tomato Brown Rugose Fruit Virus (ToBRFV) is affecting all varieties of tomatoes and is spreading
worldwide. NRGene partnered with Philoseed to develop HR (high resistant) varieties

We currently offer early access to seeds containing the first QTL region found, with an additional QTL expected
by the end of 2022.

 

Outstanding Results

 

  • Genomic location (2Mbp QTL – patent pending) not previously described (LOD score of ~9, Figure 2).
  • Mapping based on a heterozygous state, ensuring the disease resistance does not represent a recessive inheritance.
  • QTL required but not sufficient to confer high resistance.

Trait Characteristics

 

  • Phenotypes – no disease phenotypes on the fruit and leaves
  • Symptom free – for the whole season
  • IP protected

 

  • NON – GMO
  • Checked on different background
  • Suitable for all tomato segments

Package Includes

  • picon1

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is the resistance trait covered by recent patent applications from a third party?

No, the ToBRFV resistance trait was co-developed with Philoseed and an independent IP protection claim has been filed.

What tomato genetic background was used for the trait introgression?

The background used for the introgression process is a cultivated line for the big fresh tomato sector, indeterminate type.

Is linkage drag associated with the resistance?

No linkage drag has been observed for any obvious phenotypes including male sterility or plant and fruit size
