Molecular mapping of a new source of Fusarium wilt resistance in tetraploid cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.)
Fusarium wilt (FW) disease is an economically important disease of cotton worldwide and a major cause of crop losses in Australia and many other cotton-producing countries. Symptoms include wilting, vascular browning and ...
Simultaneous selection for resistance to five bacterial, fungal, and viral diseases in three Andean × Middle American inter-gene pool common bean populations
Numerous bacterial, fungal, and viral diseases cause severe damage on roots, foliage, stem, pods, and seeds, resulting in yield and quality losses in common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) worldwide. Cultivars with resistance ...
Microsatellite mapping identifies TTKST-effective stem rust resistance gene in wheat cultivars VL404 and Janz
Wheat cultivar VL404 carries seedling resistance to Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici pathotype TTKST. Monogenic segregation for seedling resistance was observed in a VL404/WL711 recombinant inbred line population and the ...
Progress of wheat breeding in China and the future perspective
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 ...
Identification and validation of a common stem rust resistance locus in two bi-parental populations
(Frontiers; Frontiers Media, 2018)
Races belonging to Ug99 lineage of stem rust fungus Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici (Pgt) continue to pose a threat to wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) production in various African countries. Growing resistant varieties is ...
Adult plant resistance to stem rust (Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici) in Pakistani advanced lines and wheat varieties
(Southern Cross Publishing; Southern Cross Publishing-Australia, 2018)
After decades of effective wheat stem rust control, due mainly to use of the Sr31 resistance gene in wheat, as of the early 2000s new virulent strains of the stem rust fungus, especially the Ug99 or the TTKSK races, are ...
Identification of QTL for adult-plant resistance to powdery mildew in Chinese wheat landrace Pingyuan 50
(Crop Science Society of China; Institute of Crop Sciences (CAAS), 2014)
Powdery mildew caused by Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici is one of the major wheat diseases worldwide. The Chinese wheat landrace Pingyuan 50 has shown adult-plant resistance (APR) to powdery mildew in the field for over ...
Characterization and mapping of leaf rust resistance in four durum wheat cultivars
(Public Library of Science, 2018)
Widening the genetic basis of leaf rust resistance is a primary objective of the global durum wheat breeding effort at the International Wheat and Maize Improvement Center (CIMMYT). Breeding programs in North America are ...
Genetic analysis of tropical maize inbred lines for resistance to maize lethal necrosis disease
(Springer Verlag, 2017)
Maize lethal necrosis (MLN) disease is a recent outbreak in eastern Africa and has emerged as a significant threat to maize production in the region. The disease is caused by the co-infection of Maize chlorotic mottle virus ...
