As research hypothesis at least some genotypes within the large domestic maize germplasm pool (more than 500 populations and inbred lines) must incorporate genes of tolerance against prevalent pathogens in Slovenia. For screening of tolerant genotypes this material must be tested using artificial infection in field condition, primary by fungi Fusarium spp. and Exserohilum turcicum. Other pathogens will be observed if present from natural sources using standard methods. For use of the further selection, all infected plants will be selfed to secure seeds of potential tolerant genotypes. All tolerant plants of populations will be selfed again to achieve homozygotic inbred lines, tolerant to a specific pathogen. The tolerant inbred lines will be included in crossings to test heritability and for developing of tolerant hybrids.
