Three partially resistant spring wheat cultivars, with a long latency period were crossed among each other and with the highly susceptible Little Club, with a very short latency period. Parents, F3 and F5 plants have been inoculated with the leaf rust race Flamingo in the young flag leaf stage to determine the latency period. From the crosses with Little Club, it was concluded that Westphal 12A carries three, Akabozu two and BH 1146 two or three genes for a longer latency period. BH 1146… CONTINUE READING
