First Report of the Ug99 Race Group of Wheat Stem Rust, Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici, in Egypt in 2014 / Plant Disease April 2016, Volume 100, Number 4, Page 863
Please find reports of the Puccinia striiformis genotyping and race analyses activities at GRRC 2010 - 2019:
Sampling site focus in 2019 will be selected by staff at ICARDA, CIMMYT and NARCs in Africa and Asia, with a focus on high risk epidemic areas. Since 2011, GRRC also accepted samples of stem rust (Puccinia graminis tritici) as agreed upon with the Borlaug Global Rust Initiative and the phase II of the Durable Rust Resistance in Wheat Project (DRRW) and now continued in the Delivering Genetic Gain in Wheat project (DGGW), 2016-2020. GRRC can only process samples according to available space and resources at any time, and we cannot guarantee to process all samples received.
The overall goal of this public-private partnership is to improve wheat productivity by reducing losses due to plant disease in conventional and organic farming systems and the dependence of fungicide sprays in general. Part of the solution is the implementation of EU Directive 2009/128/EC (“IPM directive”), which may be a major challenge at the private farm level unless high-yielding, resistant crop varieties are available. This project will utilize two different strategies for developing disease resistant wheat:
Multi-parent advanced generation inter-cross (MAGIC) and
Nested association mapping (NAM).
New phenotyping methods using microscopy will be applied on new multi-resistant wheat lines emerging from the project in order to assess and evaluate resistance mechanisms and expected ‘durability’ of identified resistance.
The project is funded by Innovation Fund Denmark
Duration: 2015-2020. Research Education: 2 ph.d. and 2 postdocs
