Abstract

Abstract

A previously unreported major dominant gene segregated for resistance to races T-1, T-15, T-16, and L-8 of common bunt (Tilletia caries and T. foetida) in a wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cross of ‘Yayla 305’, P.I. 178210 (resistant) × ‘Elgin’ (susceptible). The gene, designated Bt8, determines resistance to all races of common bunt known to be present in the Pacific Northwest states.
