Two new races of the downy mildew pathogen (Peronospora effusa) on spinach have been denominated by the International Working Group on Peronospora in spinach (IWGP). Isolate SP1924 found in Europe, is denominated as race Pe: 18. Isolate UA202001E, found in the USA, is denominated as race Pe: 19. Both races pose a significant threat to the spinach industry in all parts of the world, and resistance to these new races is important. 

BASF’s spinach assortment has a range of Nunhems varieties resistant to Pe: 18 and 19, and even more officially nominated isolates.  Updated resistance information of the Nunhems spinach assortment can be found in the spinach crop tables on our local website:
