Diversity of resistance to leaf rust caused by Puccinia triticina can be enhanced in wheat (Triticum aestivum) cultivars through a better knowledge of resistance genes that are present in important cultivars and germplasm. Multi-pathotype tests on 84 wheat cultivars grown in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden during 1992-2002 and 39 differential testers enabled the postulation of nine known genes for seedling resistance to leaf rust. Genes Lr1, Lr2a, Lr3, Lr10, Lr13, Lr14a, Lr17, Lr23 and Lr26…

Physiologic Specialization of Wheat Leaf Rust (Puccinia triticina Eriks.) in the Czech Republic in 2005-2008

Winter wheat cultivars Biscay, Mulan and Orlando were resistant to all isolates and were also resistant in field trials.

Identification of Leaf Rust Resistance Genes in Chinese Common Wheat Cultivars.

Nineteen cultivars were found to have slow rusting resistance in both field growing seasons, and evidence for the presence of genes Lr11, Lr2b, and Lr21 was also obtained.

Identification of Leaf Rust Resistance Genes in Selected Egyptian Wheat Cultivars by Molecular Markers

It is concluded that there was a good variation in Lr genes carried by wheat cultivars commercially grown in Egypt, and strategies for deploying resistance genes to prolong effective disease resistance are suggested to control wheat leaf rust disease.


These genes should be taken into consideration in wheat breeding programs for successful rust resistance and can be used as a parent for plant breeders to add new effective resistance genes to their breeding materials because of the dynamic change of leaf rust races which can breakdown the resistance.

Identification of leaf rust resistance genes in selected Argentinean bread wheat cultivars by gene postulation and molecular markers

The data suggest that combinations including seedling resistance genes like Lr16, Lr47, LR19, L r41, Ll21, Lm21, lr41, and Lr21, with adult plant resistance genes such as Lr34, SV2,Lr46 will probably provide durable and effective resistance to leaf rust in the region.

Genetic basis of spring wheat resistance to leaf rust (Puccinia triticina) in Kazakhstan and Russia

A set of 33 genotypes was selected combining resistance to leaf and stem rust with superior agronomic performance, with a clear advantage for the germplasm possessing major genes at higher leaf rust infection pressure at Omsk in 2017 and 2018, Almaty in 2019.

Specific resistance to leaf rust expressed at the seedling stage in cultivars grown in France from 1983 to 2007

Findings will help breeders and extension service staff (Arvalis) in diversifying sources of resistance to wheat leaf rust by identifying sources of quantitative resistance and quantifying selection pressure exerted on pathogen populations.

Postulation of leaf rust resistance genes in Iranian wheat cultivars and breeding lines

It is concluded that there was little variation in the Lr genes carried by wheat cultivars commercially grown in Iran, and strategies for deploying resistance genes to prolong effective disease resistance are suggested.

Postulation of seedling leaf rust resistance genes in selected Ethiopian and German bread wheat cultivars

The results of this study show that most of the wheat cultivars tested do not have adequate resistance for leaf rust, indicating the need for incorporating more effective genes into the target Wheat cultivars.

Postulation of rust resistance genes in Nordic spring wheat genotypes and identification of widely effective sources of resistance against the Australian rust flora

Assessment of diversity for resistance to three rust diseases among a set of Nordic spring wheat cultivars found a high proportion of cultivars to carry linked rust resistance genes Sr15 and Lr20, indicating the presence of a widely effective resistance gene or combination of genes with compensating pathogenic specificities.



Postulation of leaf (brown) rust resistance genes in 70 wheat cultivars grown in the United Kingdom

Multi-pathotype tests on 70 U.K. wheat cultivars permitted postulation of eight known seedling genes for resistance to Puccinia recondita f. sp.tritici either singly or in combinations. The most

Characterization of Leaf Rust Resistance in Hard Red Spring Wheat Cultivars.

Describing seedling and adult plant leaf rust resistance in hard red spring wheat cultivars grown in Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota and postulate the identity of the seedling leaf Rust resistance genes in the cultivars postulated to be present, found them to be highly resistant to leaf rust.

European virulence survey for leaf rust in wheat

With standardised near isogenic line (NIL) differentials co-operators were able to present the first comprehensive virulence survey of the European wheat leaf rust population (1996-1999), which found none was clearly predominant in Europe.

Genetic Progress in Reducing Losses to Leaf Rust in CIMMYT‐Derived Mexican Spring Wheat Cultivars

It is concluded that while the grain yield potential of CIMMYT-derived cultivars has increased significantly over the years, progress in protecting this yield potential through the incorporation of genes that confer slow rusting resistance has been more dramatic.

Molecular Characterization of Slow Leaf‐Rusting Resistance in Wheat

Both the QTL and correlation analysis indicate reasonable progress in leaf-rusting resistance by selecting for final severity, and have potential to be used in marker-assisted selection (MAS) for durable leaf rust resistant cultivars.

Genetics of leaf rust resistance in spring wheat cultivars alsen and norm.

The effective leaf rust resistance in Alsen is due to the interaction of Lr13 and Lr23, with Lr34; and the effective leaf Rust resistance in Norm isDue to the interactions of L r13, Lr16, and L r23,With Lr 34, which is similar to that of Alsen.

Regional phenotypic diversity of Puccinia triticina and wheat host resistance in western Europe, 1995

Many of the populations differed in phenotypic diversity and pathotypic composition, even though they occurred within a single epidemiological unit, suggesting that local factors may influence the establishment and propagation of individual pathotypes in the regional populations.

Adaptation of wheat rusts to the wheat cultivars in former Czechoslovakia

SummaryIn former Czechoslovakia virulence of rusts attacking wheat was studied since the sixties. Since the same time genes for resistance in the registered cultivars were identified. The role of

Verification of STS markers for leaf rust resistance genes of wheat by seven European laboratories.

The STS markers linked to resistance genes Lr9, LR10, Lr19, L r24, L R29, Ll35 and the SSR marker for Lr39 were robust and highly specific for these genes and will be useful in marker-assisted selection in wheat.

Locating the broad-spectrum wheat leaf rust resistance gene Lr52 (LrW) to chromosome 5B by a new cytogenetic method

The effectiveness and novelty of Lr52 make it a promising source of resistance for North American wheat cultivars and a potential new wheat leaf rust resistance gene using a novel genetic method and to test its effectiveness against current races of leaf rust in Canada.
