Therefore, a collection of 69 wheat lines (Triticum aestivum and T. durum), provided by CRRA-Meknes, Morocco and ICARDA, were scr...
Leaf and stripe rusts are severe foliar diseases of bread wheat. Recently, chromosomes 5Mg from the related species Aegilops geniculatathat confers resistance to both leaf and stripe rust and 5Ut from Ae. triuncialis conferring resistance to leaf rust have been transferred to bread wheat in the form of disomic DS5Mg(5D) and DS5Ut(5A) chromosome sub...
