Brown (leaf) rust of wheat, caused by Puccinia triticina was widely distributed in all the wheat growing areas. To identify new pathotypes and determine the virulence pattern of Puccinia triticina, rust samples were analyzed from the wheat growing areas in India, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal. A new pathotype 93R57 (104-4=NHKSP) was identified from Arki area of Solan district in Himachal Pradesh. Among the 37 pathotypes identified in 2124 samples analyzed during 2008-2013, four predominant… CONTINUE READING
