End Date: Jun 30, 2015
Several new international nurseries from CIMMYT/Mexico and from the GOT/CIMMYT/ICARDA Program in Turkey will be introduced and grown under quarantine regulations in the greenhouse. Previously introduced germplasm will be screened in the regional disease nursery in south Texas, and the winter types also will be evaluated in Oklahoma. All populations derived from crosses for stripe rust resistance will be screened in south Texas and in Oklahoma. Introduced materials and F3 populations with good stripe rust resistance will be made available to interested breeders from the region. CIMMYT materials will be distributed under their MTA.
