Abstract

Chromosomal location in H. chilense and expression of common bunt resistance in wheat addition lines.

Abstract

Hordeum chilense is resistant to common bunt (Tilletia tritici). Addition lines of H. chilense in wheat were utilized in field experiments to determine which H. chilense chromosomes carry resistance genes. Resistance is conferred by gene(s) on chromosome 7 and to a minor extent by such on chromosome 6 of H. chilense. Expression of resistance was quantitative.
