Final Report: DAS00102 - Breeding stem rust resistant oat using wild Avena species

Plain text source: 
A new source of leaf rust resistance from a wild diploid Avena species was successfully transferred to a Wintaroo derived breeding line... Several new sources of stem rust resistance were identified in wild oat species with partial resistance to Pga 512, the most virulent strain in Australia for which there are no other known sources of resistance... Further investigations need to be conducted to determine if these two molecular markers are reliable indicators of the presence of the alien chromosome carrying leaf rust resistance...
