In this paper we review the existence of sources of resistance and the various available screening methods for resistance in grain legumes against the airborne pathogens powdery mildews, downy mildews and rusts. Available resistance against these pathogens is not abundant and is particularly in risk of erosion owing to the constant generation and introduction of new races of the pathogen. A continuous search for more resistance sources is therefore a priority in legume breeding and special… CONTINUE READING
