Between 2002 and 2004 the evaluation method of resistance to common scab was tested on potato genetic resources. The resistance of potato tubers to common scab was evaluated in the greenhouse provocation tests with planting in naturally infested soil. The test was evaluated on the tubers of 26 varieties and hybrids of Solanum tuberosum derived from a potato genetic resource collection. Ten tubers of each sample were individually planted into three-liter pots containing infested soil. Analysis of variance confirmed significant differences among individual varieties and hybrids as well as among the years. A rating scale for the evaluation of resistance to common scab was designed. The genotypes ranked into scores 7 (high resistance) to 9 (very high resistance); on the new scale they could be considered perspective genetic resources in breeding for improvement of the level of this character. The evaluated set consisted of genotypes: Samantana, Karin, Monika, Impala, Santé, Annabelle, YP 94-067, YP 91-123, BEE J 85, Viola, and Granola.Keywords:potato; common scab; potato genetic resources
