AbstractPea (Pisum sativum) is still the most grown temperate grain legume in Europe even when the trend of cultivation is decreasing. By contrast, in Spain, pea is the only legume crop whose acreage has increased during the last two decades despite the little adaptation of modern cultivars to Mediterranean environments as the major breeding programs have concentrated their efforts to other environments. In an attempt to address this need, we started at Córdoba in 1996 a research program to support resistance breeding and to give an insight into sanitation problems that are specific of the Mediterranean Basin. We identified sources of resistance to broomrape (Orobanche crenata) is the major constraint, followed by ascochyta blight (Didymella pinodes), powdery mildew (Erysiphe pisi), rust (Uromyces pisi), fusarium wilt (Fusarium oxysporumf.sp. pisi) and to pea aphid (Acyrthosiphon pisum) and pea weevil (Bruchus pisorum). These were successfully crossed with elite pea cultivars and submitted to breeding resulting in the registration of the first peacultivars resistant to broomrape combined with other resistances. We advanced in studies of inheritance describing genes or QTLs and in the characterization of the resistance mechanisms that will be critically discussed.
