Rust diseases of wheat: concepts and methods of disease management
Roelfs, A.P., R.P. Singh, and E.E. Saari. 1992. Rust Diseases of Wheat: Concepts and methods of disease management. Mexico, D.F.: CIMMYT. 81 pages. The rust diseases of wheat are among the most studied of the plant diseases. ...
Proceedings of the Warren E. Kronstad Symposium
On 15-17 of March 2001, CIMMYT held a special symposium in Ciudad Obregón, Sonora, Mexico, in memory of Dr. Warren E. Kronstad, Distinguished Professor at Oregon State University, who died on 21 May 2000, after a two-year ...
Genomic prediction of genetic values for resistance to wheat rusts
(Crop Science Society of America, 2012)
Durable resistance to the rust diseases of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) can be achieved by developing lines that have race-nonspecific adult plant resistance conferred by multiple minor slow-rusting genes. Genomic selection ...
The screening of wheat germplasm for resistance to stripe and leaf rust in Kazakhstan using molecular markers
(David Publishing, 2012)
Resistance to stripe and leaf rusts is the most important objectives in Kazakhstan, and they are the major factor that adversely affects wheat yield and quality and finally causes considerable economic damage. This study ...
Multi-trait and multi-environment QTL analyses for resistance to wheat diseases
(Public Library of Science, 2012)
Background: Stripe rust, leaf rust, tan spot, and Karnal bunt are economically significant diseases impacting wheat production. The objectives of this study were to identify quantitative trait loci for resistance to these ...
Guide to the CIMMYT Wheat Crop Protection Subprogram
This wheat special report provides an introduction to the CIMMYT Wheat Program's Crop Protection Subprogram. It is designed to help acquaint donors, visiting scientists, and other interested persons with the Subprogram's ...
Las royas del trigo: conceptos y métodos para el manejo de esas enfermedades
Las royas del trigo se incluyen entre las enfermedades más estudiadas de las plantas. Apartir de las obras de Tozzetti y Fontana en 1767, existe una lista muy extensa de publicaciones científicas sobre los agentes patógenos ...
CIMMYT report on wheat improvement 1979
The year 1979 was a good one for wheat production in many developing countries. India and Pakistan registered new records of 34.7 and just under 10.0 million tons, respectively. Turkey produced more than 16 million tons, ...
Postulated genes for resistance to stripe rust in selected CIMMYT and related wheats
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 1989)
Infection type data were used to postulate the presence of stripe rust seedling resistance genes in 20 CIMMYT and related bread wheats. Yr3, Yr6, Yr7, and Yr9 were hypothesized to be present in 12 lines, either alone or ...
Effect of leaf rust on grain yield and yield traits of durum wheats with race-specific and slow-rusting resistance to leaf rust
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2006)
Leaf rust, caused by Puccinia triticina, is an important disease of durum wheat (Triticum turgidum) in many countries. We compared the effectiveness of different types of resistance in International Maize and Wheat Improvement ...
