Punjab 53, which is a composite of wilt resistant selection; of flax stemming from a single plant of Punjab, is resistant to some clone; of wilt because of two complementary genes FUA and FUB—A and B for convenience. The original plant of Punjab apparently had the genotype AaBB or AABb.

A third gene FuC was found in Dakota 48–94 that would account for much of its resistance to one clone of wilt highly pathogenic on Punjab 53.
