Genetic divergence and diversity in Himalayan Puccinia striiformis populations from Bhutan, Nepal, and Pakistan
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2019)
The western Himalayan region in Pakistan has been shown to be the center of diversity of Puccinia striiformis; however, little is known about its genetic relations with the eastern part of the Himalayas. We studied the ...
Progress in breeding for resistance to Ug99 and other races of the stem rust fungus in CIMMYT wheat germplasm
(Higher Education Press, 2019)
Races belonging to the Ug99 (TTKSK) lineage of the wheat stem rust fungus, carrying complex virulence combinations, and their migration to countries in Africa, Middle East and Asia continue to pose a significant threat to ...
Global stem rust phenotyping network for wheat improvement
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. ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
QTL mapping of adult-plant resistance to stripe rust in Chinese wheat cultivar Chuanyu 16
(Canadian Center of Science and Education, 2012)
Stripe rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici, is a serious wheat fungal disease, causing significant annual yield losses worldwide. The Chinese wheat cultivar Chuanyu 16 has shown good adult-plant resistance ...
