Results of winter and facultative wheat varieties and lines assessment for resistance to yellow rust and loose smut in central Tajikistan
(Ministry of Culture, Information and Sport of the Republic of Kazakhstan, 2006)
Genome-wide association study for multiple biotic stress resistance in synthetic hexaploid wheat
Genetic resistance against biotic stress is a major goal in many wheat breeding programs. However, modern wheat cultivars have a limited genetic variation for disease and pest resistance and there is always a possibility ...
Genome wide association study of karnal bunt resistance in a wheat germplasm collection from Afghanistan
Karnal bunt disease of wheat, caused by the fungus Neovossia indica, is one of the most important challenges to the grain industry as it affects the grain quality and also restricts the international movement of infected ...
QTL mapping for adult-plant resistance to powdery mildew in bread wheat
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2006)
Powdery mildew, caused by Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici, is a major wheat disease in China. Use of adult-plant resistance is an effective method to develop wheat cultivars with durable resistance to powdery mildew. In ...
Controlling foliar blight of wheat in South Asia: A holistic approach
(The Scientific and Technology Research Council of Turkey, 2005)
Foliar blight is a major biotic constraint to wheat in the Gangetic plains of south Asia, particularly in the rice-wheat system. The disease occurs as a complex of spot blotch and tan spot caused by C. sativus and P. ...
Current status, likely migration and strategies to mitigate the threat to wheat production from race Ug99 (TTKS) of stem rust pathogen
(CABI Publishing, 2006)
Stem or black rust, caused by Puccinia graminis tritici, has historically caused severe losses to wheat (Triticum aestivum) production worldwide. Successful control of the disease for over three decades through the use of ...
Enhanced resistance in wheat against stem rust achieved by marker assisted backcrossing involving three independent Sr genes
Marker assisted backcrossing (MABC) was used to transfer the three stem rust (Puccinia graminis tritici)resistant genes Sr25, SrWeb and Sr50 into the popular Indian wheat cv. HUW234. The donor was theCIMMYT breeding line ...
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 ...
Genetic diversity of microsatellite alleles located at quantitative resistance loci for Ascochyta blight resistance in a global collection of chickpea germplasm
(Universitá Degli Studi Firenze, 2013)
A global collection of 43 chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) genotypes, resistant and susceptible to Ascochyta blight caused by Ascochyta rabiei was evaluated for the disease under controlled conditions. In this study three ...
