The inheritance of resistance in safflower, Carthamus tinctorius L., to the foliage and seedling phase of rust, incited by Puccinia carthami Cda., was studied in crosses between rust-susceptible lines and three resistant selection (‘PI 195895-95,’ ‘PI 250601-109,’ ‘PI 253914-5’). The relationship between the genes for resistance of these selections and the resistance genes of ‘7083-245-8,’ ‘PI 250721-73,’ and ‘Nebraska 1-1-5’ was determined from the segregation ratios exhibited in the F2 and F3 generations. Three independently inherited-dominant-factor pairs AA, II, and MM, which individually and collectively condition resistance to both seedling and foliage rust, were found — Gene A in PI 253914-5, gene M in PI 195895-95 and 7083-245-8, and gene I in PI 250601-109 and PI 250721-73. Genes A, I, and M were inherited independently of the exclusionary resistance gene-pair N1N1 of Nebraska 1-1-5. They are believed to be unrelated to the OyOy gene pair for resistance in Carthamus oxyacantha M.B.
