The aim of the project is to contribute to the development of a more sustainable onion production by breeding for thrips resistance in onion. To reach the goal the project will focus on the identification of novel sources of thrips resistance among crossable wild relatives of onion, and when identified, characterize this resistance with respect to its genetics and mechanisms.
