The economic impact in developing countries of leaf rust resistance breeding in CIMMYT-related spring bread wheat
This study was undertaken to estimate the economic impact of efforts since 1973 by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) to develop spring bread wheat varieties resistant to leaf rust caused by ...
The septoria diseases of wheat: concepts and methods of disease management
This manual summarizes the more pertinent scientific reports on managing the two major septoria pathogens. Topics include the biology of the fungi, infection process, collection an handling of infected material, isolation ...
Proceedings of the Warren E. Kronstad Symposium
On 15-17 of March 2001, CIMMYT held a special symposium in Ciudad Obregón, Sonora, Mexico, in memory of Dr. Warren E. Kronstad, Distinguished Professor at Oregon State University, who died on 21 May 2000, after a two-year ...
Breeding barley in the new millenium: proceedings of an International Symposium
These are the proceedings of an international barley symposium held on 13-14 March 2000 in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, Mexico. The primary reason for holding this special seminar was to honor Dr. Hugo E. Vivar, who retired in ...
Microsatellite markers for genes Lr34/Yr18 and other quantitative trait loci for leaf rust and stripe rust resistance in bread wheat
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2003)
Leaf rust and stripe rust, caused by Puccinia triticina and P. striiformis, respectively, are important diseases of wheat in many countries. In this study we sought to identify molecular markers for adult plant resistance ...
Characterization of seedling infection types and adult plant infection responses of monogenic Sr gene lines to race TTKS of Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici.
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2007)
Stem rust, caused by Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici, historically was one of the most destructive diseases of wheat and barley. The disease has been under effective control worldwide through the widespread use of host ...
Mapping and pyramiding of qualitative and quantitative resistance to stripe rust in barley
The identification and location of sources of genetic resistance to plant diseases are important contributions to the development of resistant varieties. The combination of different sources and types of resistance in the ...
Validation of consensus quantitative trait loci associated with resistance to multiple foliar pathogens of maize
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2009)
Maize production in sub-Saharan Africa incurs serious losses to epiphytotics of foliar diseases. Quantitative trait loci conditioning partial resistance (rQTL) to infection by causal agents of gray leaf spot (GLS), northern ...
A novel homeobox-like gene associated with reaction to stripe rust and powdery mildew in common wheat
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2008)
Stripe rust and powdery mildew, caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici and Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici, respectively, are severe diseases in wheat (Triticum aestivum) worldwide. In our study, differential ...
Results of the ninth International Triticale Yield Nursery (ITYN) 1977-1978
This report provides a summary of the results of the 9th ITYN from 67 sites which were received from the 110 locations in the world, to where this nursery was sent during 1977-1978. The 9th ITYN contained triticale lines ...
