Wheat forms resistant to thrips damage.

Abstract

Results are tabulated for the degree of Haplothrips tritici [Frankliniella tritici] infestation in 286 Triticum aestivum and 20 T. durum forms of diverse origin at the VIR's Central Asian branch in 1982 at the grain filling and milk-wax stages of ripening. Early maturing forms were less affected than late maturing forms. One form from Hungary, 2 from the USA, 3 from Chile and 2 from Italy were resistant.
