Advanced bread wheat lines (Triticum aestivum); durum wheat (T. durum), hybrids derived from T. aestivum with Agropyron spp. and lines from basic germplasm were evaluated for resistance to Tilletia Indica. Plants were artificially inoculated during boot stage with a sporidial suspension of 10(4)/ml on three planting dates at CIANO, Cd. Obregon, Sonora, Mexico, during 1990-91. Percentages of lines with levels of infection below 5% were 33.3 for lines derived from intergeneric crosses, 36.4 for bread wheats, 59.5 for lines from the basic germplasm development program and 80.8 for durum wheats. The average percent infection of the susceptible check was 73%.
