B. nigra exhibits high levels of resistance to Phoma lingam. The genetic behaviour of this resistance was investigated using B. napus-B. nigra addition lines. At least 3 different B. nigra chromosomes were found to contribute to the blackleg resistance. Thus, this resistance was suggested to be polygenic. In addition, high levels of P. lingam resistance in euploid offspring led to the assumption that translocations have taken place in early generations after hybridization between B. napus and B. nigra.
