THE INCURSION OF NEW WHEAT STEM RUST RACES INTO THE UNITED STATES: PREPARATION THROUGH RESEARCH, EDUCATION AND EXTENSION
Cereal Disease Laboratory
Project Number: 3640-21220-020-28
Specific Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Sep 16, 2009
End Date: Jul 31, 2012
The primary objective is to help facilitate enhancement of U.S. wheat cultivars by supporting movement of genes with effective stem rust resistance to new Pgt races into elite wheat germplasm.
Marker assisted selection will be used to enhance the movement of effective stem rust resistance genes into advanced breeding lines of wheat.
