Achievement：Changes in the environment and climate often cause high temperatures and humidity in summer, with low temperatures and high humidity in winter and spring. Plant disease is often the limiting factor in the cultivation and production of solanaceous crops. The virus infection, bacterial wilt, and blight diseases often affect Solanaceae. To select tomato varieties for resistance to yellow leaf curl virus and bacterial wilt, and ten tomato lines were collected this year, with planting fields that were for disease resistance observation and genetic detection. And conduct S5 generations of resistance to yellow leaf curl virus disease and bacterial wilt to enhance cultivation, and also completed ten combinations of disease-resistant plants back cross introduct of high-quality varieties and ten hybrid combinations of evaluate to disease resistance and heat resistance.
