Identification of genomic associations for adult plant resistance in the background of popular South Asian wheat cultivar, PBW343
Rusts, a fungal disease as old as its host plant wheat, has caused havoc for over 8000 years. As the rust pathogens can evolve into new virulent races which quickly defeat the resistance that primarily rely on race ...
Evaluation of bread wheat for both seedling and adult plant resistance to stem rust
(Academic Journals, 2012)
Wheat is an important staple food crop in sub-Saharan Africa. However, the current wheat consumption of 900 000 tons in Kenya outweighs the wheat production of 350 000 tons given the high population growth and inflation. ...
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 ...
Identification and validation of single nucleotide polymorphic markers linked to Ug99 stem rust resistance in spring wheat
(Public Library of Science, 2017)
Wheat stem rust (Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici Eriks. and E. Henn.) is one of the most destructive diseases world-wide. Races belonging to Ug99 (or TTKSK) continue to cause crop losses in East Africa and threaten global ...
Natural variation in elicitation of defense-signaling associates to field resistance against the spot blotch disease in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
Spot blotch, caused by the hemibiotropic fungus Bipolaris sorokiniana, is amongst the most damaging diseases of wheat. Still, natural variation in expression of biochemical traits that determine field resistance to spot ...
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 ...
Quantitative trait loci in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) associated with resistance to stripe rust
(Taylor & Francis, 2008)
Stripe rust is an important wheat disease worldwide and resistance to stripe rust is often not controlled by race-specific resistance genes. To identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) affecting quantitative resistance to ...
Progress of wheat breeding in China and the future perspective
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2011)
During the last ten years, Chinese wheat breeding has mainly made progresses in three aspects, i.e., (1) two sets of cultivars with high yielding potential, improved quality, and multi-resistance to various diseases were ...
Seedling and slow rusting resistances to leaf rust in CIMMYT wheat lines
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2011)
CIMMYT wheat has played an important role in wheat breeding in China. Identification of leaf rust resistance genes in CIMMYT wheat is important for developing wheat cultivars with resistance to leaf rust in China. A total ...
Characterization and mapping of Leaf Rust and Stripe Rust resistance loci in hexaploid wheat lines UC1110 and PI610750 under Mexican environments
Growing resistant wheat varieties is a key method of minimizing the extent of yield losses caused by the globally important wheat leaf rust (LR) and stripe rust (YR) diseases. In this study, a population of 186 F8 recombinant ...
