(CIMMYT; IARC, 1998)
This study describes the Ethiopian wheat seed system, identifies how farmers acquire and exchange wheat seed, explores problems related to farmers' acquisition and transfer of wheat seed, documents the status of previously ...
Estimation of optimum plot dimensions and replication number for wheat experimentation in Ethiopia
(African Crop Science Society, 2000)
Bread wheat was row and broadcast sown using uniform crop management practices on a research station soil classified as a haplic Nitisol, situated in a major wheat producing region of Ethiopia, during the 1996 and 1997 ...
Grain yield of barley as affected by cropping sequence and fertilizer application in Southeastern Ethiopia
(African Crop Science Society, 1997)
Cropping systems in the Ethiopian highlands involve rotations of cereals with grain legume and oilseed crops; the proportional allocation among crop species varies with altitude, rainfall, and soil type. Barley (Hordeum ...
Races of Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici with combined virulence to Sr13 and Sr9e in a field stem rust screening nursery in Ethiopia
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2012)
North American durum lines, selected for resistance to TTKSK (Ug99) and related races of Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici in Kenya, became susceptible in Debre Zeit, Ethiopia, suggesting the presence of stem rust races ...
First report of Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici races with virulence to wheat stem rust resistance genes Sr31 and Sr24 in Eritrea
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2011)
Wheat stem rust, caused by Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici, has historically been a major limiting factor in wheat production. Identification of isolate Ug99 in Uganda in 1999 highlighted the vulnerability of a large ...
The spread of stem rust caused by Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici, with Virulence on Sr31 in wheat in Eastern Africa
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2006)
Stem rust resistance in wheat cultivars with Sr31 has been effective and durable worldwide for more than 30 years. Isolates of Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici with virulence to Sr31 were detected in Uganda in 1999 (1). ...
