Genes for Stem Rust Resistance in Kenya Farmer Wheat1

  1. Mohammed Aslam and
  2. E. R. Ausemus2



In crosses of Kenya Farmer with Marquis, Kentana, and Lerma, the mature plant reaction to a collection of races of stem rust in the field appeared to be inherited on a relatively simple basis, with resistance dominant. The F3 seedling reactions to stem rust race 15B indicated an interaction of 3 independently inherited genes for resistance and 2 epistatic genes for susceptibility. Seedling reaction to races 38 and 11 were the same except there was only 1 susceptible gene.
