Chapter synopsis: Resistance breeding can make a lasting contribution to pest and disease control in an integrated management strategy provided that the resistance is durable. This chapter discusses strategies for achieving durable resistance based on genes that target pathogen fitness, gene pyramiding and nonhost resistance. The chapter examines the application of breeding tools. Finally, the chapter looks ahead to future trends in resistance breeding and provides guidance on further reading in this area.
