A doubled haploid (DH) barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) population of 334 lines (ND24260 × Flagship) genotyped with DArT markers was used to map genes for adult plant resistance (APR) to leaf rust (Puccinia hordei Otth) under field conditions in Australia and Uruguay. The Australian barley cultivar Flagship carries an APR gene (qRphFlag) derived from the(More)
“To find stable resistance using association mapping tools, QTL with major and minor effects on leaf rust reactions were identified in barley breeding lines by assessing seedlings and adult plants.” Three hundred and sixty (360) elite barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) breeding lines from the Northern Region Barley Breeding Program in Australia were genotyped with(More)
Bipolaris sorokiniana (teleomorph: Cochliobolus sativus), the causal agent of common rootrot (CRR) and foliar spot blotch (SB) diseases in barley and wheat, is an economically important fungal pathogen worldwide. However, the relationship between these two diseases is poorly understood. Differences within Australian B. sorokiniana populations were revealed(More)
Fourteen single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were identified at the mating type (MAT) loci of Pyrenophora teres f. teres (Ptt), which causes net form (NF) net blotch, and P. teres f. maculata (Ptm), which causes spot form (SF) net blotch of barley. MAT-specific SNP primers were developed for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and the two forms were(More)
Evaluation of resistance to Pyrenophora teres f. maculata in barley breeding populations via association mapping revealed a complex genetic architecture comprising a mixture of major and minor effect genes. In the search for stable resistance to spot form of net blotch (Pyrenophora teres f. maculata, SFNB), association mapping was conducted on four(More)
The use of fungicides to control yellow spot in wheat, caused by Pyrenophora tritici-repentis, in the northern wheat region of Australia, was examined in three field experiments. Field conditions were conducive to disease development. This was aided by spreading stubble infested with P. tritici-repentis and by regular spray irrigations, and moderate yellow(More)
A survey of the Australian barley powdery mildew (Blumeria graminis f. sp. hordei) population was conducted in 2010 and 2011. Three hundred and sixty-two isolates of the pathogen were collected from 18 locations across all six states of Australia. Thirty-two barley differentials were used and 11 genotypes were able to differentiate the population with(More)
A recently developed spot form of blotch differential set of 16 barley lines was tested for reaction response to 60 Pyrenophora teres f. maculata isolates from geographically disperse barley crops of Australia. Twelve barley lines (Arimont, Barque, Chebec, CI5286, CI5791, CI9214, CII6150, Dairokkaku, Esperance Orge 289, Galleon, Keel, Skiff, Torrens and(More)
We identified Rph24 as a locus in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) controlling adult plant resistance (APR) to leaf rust, caused by Puccinia hordei. The locus was previously reported as a quantitative trait locus in barley line ND24260-1 and named qRphND. We crossed ND24260-1 to the leaf-rust-susceptible standard Gus and determined inheritance patterns in the(More)
Pyrenophora teres f. teres (Ptt) is the causal agent of net form of net blotch (NFNB) – a major foliar disease of barley (Hordeum vulgare) crops worldwide. Deployment of genetic resistance in cultivars is the preferred method of control, but requires knowledge of the pathogenic variation of Ptt to be effective as spatial and temporal variation is common.
