Performance and survival of different races of Puccinia graminis f.sp. tritici on detached leaves of wheat

Abstract

The detached leaf culture of Puccinia graminis f.sp. tritici was tested with eight races and two biotypes of the pathogen. The inherent characteristics of the races were similar to those in intact plants. Continuous maintenance of races in pure culture on detached leaves showed the usefulness of the technique for multiplication of inoculum as well as for maintenance of races in other basic studies.
