Pods from infected plants may show shrivelling and darkening of irregular areas.
The period from 1981 onward is considered as the modern manipulation phase, including intensive investigation utilizing biotechnological approaches through exploitation of plant tissue culture, synthesis of an array of cytoplasmic male sterile (CMS) hybrids, the use of recombinant DNA techniques and molecular markers, cloning of genes, development of transgenics for various traits, construction of molecular maps, and identification of markers for various traits. During periods of high temperature when the plant is near maturity, soft rot may occur.
The doubled haploid production system enables breeders to develop homozygous genotypes from heterozygous parents in one generation. L., n = 10) originated from the highlands near the Mediterranean Sea rather than from the Mediterranean coastal areas (Tsunoda 1980). The period from 1910 to 1950 was the foundation phase for brassica improvement in India in which landraces were collected, good lines were selected, and hybridization and cytogenetical research was initiated. Three diploid species, B. nigra (bb), B. campestris (aa) (syn, B. rapa), and B. oleracea (cc), are the progenitors of the naturally occurring allotetraploid species B. juncea (aabb), B. napus (aacc), and B. carinata (bbcc). The six major Brassica species of economic importance exist in a natural relationship that was described by the genetic and cytogenetic work of U and Morinaga (6). The genus Brassica is one of 51 genera in the tribe Brassiceae belonging to the crucifer family, and is the economically most important genus within this tribe, containing 37 different species (Gomez-Campo 1980). Oleiferous brassicas are generally derived from two species, B. napus L. and B. campestris L. (syn. In Kenya, a management scheme has been adapted to help farmers to keep the disease within tolerance levels. The pathogen was found in crucifer crops from the five agro-ecological regions of the country. Though the progenitor species likely originated in the Mediterranean region, the cultivated brassica vegetables are of cosmopolitan distribution. Brassicas produce glucosinolates, which assist in the biofumigation of endophytes, nematodes, and insects. Curd rot symptoms caused by the black rot organism are characterized by the appearance of yellowish-brown to black areas on the fringes of the bolt surface often accompanied with bacterial ooze in wet and humid weather. Note that there are many hundreds of edible brassica species. These species have been cultivated for many centuries and have been extensively crossed and hybridized. alboglabra (Chinese kale), Brassica oleracea var.
Infected seeds usually do not show any sign of infection. Many crop species are included in the Brassica genus, which provide edible roots, leaves, stems, buds, flowers and seed. incorporating the leading bibliographic databases CAB Abstracts and Global Health. The widespread occurrence of black rot in Rajasthan, with a high incidence of seed infection, can be the cause of severe losses (Sharma et al., 1992).
Brassica vegetables include a large number of taxonomically closely related, but morphologically and organoleptically diverse, plants.

Symptomless plants are common during the vegetative period until flowering.
Approximately 70% of several million transplants from one single seedbed were systemically infected in the USA in 1973 (Williams, 1980). Herbaceous above and woody below, erect, branched, cylindrical, slightly hairy.
