In cases where specific races or strains of resistances are not noted, the variety is resistant or tolerant to some, but not necessarily all known races or strains of the pathogen.
We have exercised the utmost care compiling these variety descriptions. For the Nigerian market we made some adjustments in the original descriptions from our suppliers based on results in our trials at Kano. For all details on varieties listed, including latest information on resistances, please refer to the websites of our suppliers Enza Zaden (www.enzazaden.com), Majstro Seeds (www.majstroseeds.com) and Pop Vriend Vegetable Seeds (www.popvriendvegetableseeds.com).
