Resistance or tolerance has been identified for 13 major diseases of pea and at least 5 major diseases in each of chickpea, faba bean and lentil. Most of the resistances are oligogenic; some have proven to be stable but many have not. Approaches to improve the stability and durability of resistance are discussed.
