A search for practically valuable mutant genes conferring resistance to barley powdery mildew applied a screening system where four commercial varieties of barley without known genes for resistance were tested to the successful mildew race D1. Ionizing radiations and chemicals were used as mutagens. Among the 71 resistant lines isolated, 28 were recessive and belonging to locus ml-o, and 43 were dominant. In tests to a panel of 30 different races of barley powdery mildew, 27 among the dominant… CONTINUE READING
