Interpretive Summary: Stripe rust can be controlled by growing resistant cultivars, applying fungicides and through some cultural practices. As developing and growing resistant cultivars is the most preferred approach for control of stripe rust and a great body of knowledge has been obtained for resistance, the topic of resistance is discussed in Chapter 5. This chapter focuses on the information and techniques of fungicides and cultural practices related to effecting stripe rust development and control. The advantages and disadvantages of individual strategies are discussed. Based on the discussion, we propose the integrated control approach that primarily relies on developing and growing cultivars with adequate and durable resistance, secondarily utilizes effective fungicides with timely applications when necessary and uses appropriate cultural practices. The integrated approach allows best control on a yearly basis based on available resistant cultivars of acceptable yield and quality, effective fungicides and cultural practices most suitable for the region. The approach also allows continual improving cultivar resistance and other measures for more effective and sustainable control of the disease.
