Lines of wheat that represent chromosome substitutions into Chinese from Hope, Thatcher, Red Egyptian, and Timstein, have been tested for resistance to a number of cultures of stem lust. Chromosomes VII and XVII from Hopt; III, XIII, and XIX from Thatcher; VI, XIII, and XX From Red Egyptian; X from Timstein; and XI from Chinese carry genes for resistance to one or more of the cultures.
