A QTL on chromosome 5BL in wheat enhances leaf rust resistance of Lr46

Abstract

Combinations of effective leaf rust resistance genes that condition resistance to many leaf rust races are key to the development of wheat cultivars with long-lasting resistance to leaf rust caused by Puccinia triticina. A population of F6 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) derived from the cross ‘Thatcher*3/Americano 25e’ was evaluated for segregation of… (More)
