Use of seedlings for predicting field resistance of wheat toErysiphe graminis f. sp.tritici

  • M. S. Ghemawat


Seedlings can be used to predict field resistance, if any, of wheat varieties and experimental lines to wheat powdery mildew fungus,Erysiphe graminis f. sp.tritici. First leaves of 8-day-old seedlings of a field-resistant wheat showed a greater frequency of primary infections in subsidiary cells of stomata than those in a susceptible wheat. This method of predicting field resistance of experimental lines from seedling studies should prove time-saving because crosses involving field-resistant experimental lines can be made in the same generation.

Užití klíčních rostlin pro indikaci polní resistence pšenice k padlí travnímu


Klíčních rostlin lze použít pro předpovídání polní odolnosti odrůd a experimentálních linií pšenice vůči padlí travnímu,Erisyphe graminis f. sp.tritici. U prvních listů osmidenních klíčních rostlin odrůdy v polních podmínkách odolné bylo více primárních infekcí ve vedlejších buňkách průduchů, než u odrůdy náchylné k infekci.
