Leaf rust, caused by Puccinia triticina (Pt), is one of the most important fungal diseases of wheat worldwide. The common wheat genotype BT-Schomburgk selection (BTSS) and the durum wheat cultivar Tamaroi carry Lr23, which is effective against predominant Pt pathotypes in Australia. BTSS and Tamaroi were crossed with the seedling susceptible genotypes W195 and Bansi, respectively, and recombinant inbred line (RIL) F5:7 populations W195/BTSS (88 RILs) and Tamaroi/Bansi (85 RILs) were developed… CONTINUE READING
