Under field conditions the mature plant resistance of C.I. 12633 to race 11 of leaf rust was found to be controlled by one partially dominant major gene in crosses with Federation and White Federation wheat. However, in the cross with Ramona two partially dominant complementary major genes were found. These two genes were allelic to genes for resistance in Chinese Spring wheat.
