New APR QTL for leaf rust and stripe rust in seven genetic populations
Bread wheat lines Francolin #1, Kenya Kongoni, Kundan and Sujata, and CIMMYT derived durum wheat lines Bairds, Dunkler and Quetru display an adequate level of APR to both leaf rust and stripe rust in Mexican field environments. ...
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 ...
Potential for re-emergence of wheat stem rust in the United Kingdom
(Nature Research, 2018)
Wheat stem rust, a devastating disease of wheat and barley caused by the fungal pathogen Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici, was largely eradicated in Western Europe during the mid-to-late twentieth century. However, isolated ...
Genomic selection for quantitative adult plant stem rust resistance in wheat
(Crop Science Society of America, 2014)
Quantitative adult plant resistance (APR) to stem rust (Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici) is an important breeding target in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and a potential target for genomic selection (GS). To evaluate the ...
Genome-wide association mapping for leaf tip necrosis and pseudo-black chaff in relation to durable rust resistance in wheat
(Crop Science Society of America, 2015)
The partial rust resistance genes Lr34 and Sr2 have been used extensively in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) improvement, as they confer exceptional durability. Interestingly, the resistance of Lr34 is associated with the ...
