Wheat germplasm screening for stem rust resistance using conventional and molecular techniques
(Czech Academy of Agricultural Sciences, 2011)
In Central Asia, stem rust (Puccinia graminis f.sp. tritici) causes considerable damage, especially during growing seasons with high rainfall. Ug99 is a race of stem rust that is virulent to the majority of wheat varieties. ...
Indicators of wheat genetic diversity and germplasm use in the people's republic of China
A preliminary study of wheat genetic diversity in the People's Republic of China is presented. Available evidence and basic data related to the ancestry of leading wheat cultivars and the area distribution of dominant ...
Breeding for resistance to Fusarium head blight of wheat in the mid- to lower Yangtze River Valley of China
Fusarium head blight (FHB) of wheat or scab is an important fungal disease in many areas of the world, especially where humid moist conditions prevail from heading to maturity. It is a particularly troublesome disease in ...
Wheat and wheat breeding in the former USSR
The USSR is one of the main wheat-producing countries in the world. It has a longestablished wheat breeding network involving institutes and stations nationwide. Soviet scientists have contributed to modern varieties and ...
Wheat and wheat breeding in China
