We treated seeds of ‘Little Club’ wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) with ethyl methanesulfonate (EMS) and tested M. seedlings for reaction to stem rust (Puccinia graminis Pers. f. sp. tritici Eriks. & E. Henn.). Mutants resistant to races 111, 15B, and 32 of stem rust were recovered. Every resistant plant in the mutant family was light green in color; whereas, every susceptible plant was normal dark green.
