Citation: Chen, X., Wood, D.A., Penman, L., Ling, P., Wang, M.N., Lin, F. 2006. Epidemiology and control of wheat stripe rust in the United States, 2005. Annual Wheat Newsletter 52:192-196.

Interpretive Summary: This newsletter article summarizes results of studies on wheat stripe rust conducted in 2005. The article covers monitoring rusts, predicting epidemics, assessing yield losses, and identifying races of the wheat stripe rust pathogen, evaluating wheat germplasms and breeding lines for rust resistance; determining genetics of resistance, developing molecular markers and cloning genes for resistance to stripe rust; and determining effectiveness and use of foliar fungicides for rust control. The information and data on stripe rust epidemic, the pathogen races, germplasms and breeding lines with resistance to stripe rust, resistance genes and their molecular markers, and efficacy of new fungicides should be useful for developing resistant cultivars and using effective fungicides for control of the disease.

Technical Abstract: This newsletter article summarizes results of studies on wheat stripe rust conducted in 2005. The article covers monitoring rusts, predicting epidemics, assessing yield losses, and identifying races of Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici; evaluating wheat germplasms and breeding lines for rust resistance; determining genetics of resistance, developing molecular markers and cloning genes for resistance to stripe rust; and determining effectiveness and use of foliar fungicides for rust control. The information and data on stripe rust epidemic, the pathogen races, germplasms and breeding lines with resistance to stripe rust, resistance genes and their molecular markers, and efficacy of new fungicides should be useful for developing resistant cultivars and using effective fungicides for control of the disease.
