Molecular mapping as a tool for pre-emptive breeding for resistance to the exotic barley pathogen, Puccinia striiformis f. sp. hordei
Barley stripe rust (BSR), caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. hordei, has been a major disease problem to the barley industry worldwide that has not, to date, been detected in Australia. This paper describes the mapping ...
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 ...
New wheats for a secure, sustainable future
This paper reviews strategies used by CIMMYT and its partners to develop sustainable wheat production systems for favored and marginal areas. These strategies aim to achieve an optimal combination of the best genotypes ...
The bacterial diseases of wheat: concepts and methods of disease management
The most common bacterial pathogens that attack wheat are grouped under the names Xanthomonas translucens and Pseudomonas syringae. Pathovars (bacterial strains pathogenic to a specific host or hosts) included in X. ...
CIMMYT's maize germplasm management, improvement, and utilization program
Improving the maize plant is the subject of this publication. It first outlines several population improvement schemes and then focuses on the approach that CIMMYT has adopted in its own maize program. The structure and ...
