Interplot interference and the assessment of barley cultivars for partial resistance to leaf rust, Puccinia hordei

The barley cultivars Akka, highly susceptible, and ‘Vada’, partially resistant to barley leaf rust, Puccinia hordei, were evaluated for the amount of leaf rust in five experimental field plot situations over three successive years. The field plot situations were: A) plots well isolated from each other by distance and non-leaf rust contributing host plants… CONTINUE READING
