Final Report: UA00101 - Advancement of new genes for stem and leaf rust resistance from uncultivated relatives of wheat

Plain text source: 
With the appearance and spread of mutants of the Ug99 lineage originating in Africa, most of the stem rust resistance genes used in Australian wheats are now vulnerable to stem rust... Progeny tests showed that six plants were Lr resistant and two plants were susceptible... Stocks with several hundred critical seeds carrying the 6Ae chromosome in a ph1bph1b genotype have been produced...
