A six week screening method for mechanisms of host plant resistance to Diuraphis noxia in wheat accessions

Abstract

The Russian wheat aphid Diuraphis noxia (Kurdjumov) is a serious pest of wheat in South Africa. The use of D. noxia-resistant cultivars may reduce the impact of this pest on wheat production and at the same time reduce environmental risks and control costs. The mechanisms of resistance in two new sources of resistance were compared by using various methods… (More)
