Leaf rust and stripe rust are important diseases of wheat world-wide and deployment of cultivars with genetic resistance is an effective and environmentally sound control method. The use of minor, additive genes conferring adult plant resistance (APR) has been shown to provide resistance that is durable. The wheat cultivar ‘Pastor’ originated from the(More)
Genetic studies were undertaken to determine the inheritance and genomic location of uncharacterised seedling resistance to leaf rust, caused by Puccinia hordei, in the barley cultivar Ricardo. The resistance was shown to be conferred by a single dominant gene, which was tentatively designated RphRic. Bulk segregant analysis (BSA) and genetic mapping of an(More)
Leaf rust of wheat, caused by Puccinia triticina, is an important disease throughout the world. The adult plant leaf rust resistance gene Lr48 reported in CSP44 was previously mapped in chromosome 2B, but the marker–gene association was weak. In this study, we confirmed the location of Lr48 to be in the short arm of chromosome 2B and identified closely(More)
Major gene resistance to leaf scald caused by Rhynchosporium commune is readily detected in barley seedlings. Screening of barley lines in this manner has been used to identify and map the presence of several such major genes. Similar detection systems have not been possible for minor genes, detection of which has come from field evaluation of plants at(More)
