Even though my presentation is very broad and covers many issues, I assure you that I have been involved in breeding for resistance to septoria tritici blotch for at least 25 years, with some remarkable success. In this attempt, I would like to recognize the contribution of Prof. Zahir Eyal, who served as a consultant on septoria issues to CIMMYT in the 1970's and 1980's. Indeed, he and I have some common intellectual roots through Prof. Ralph Caldwell of Purdue University. Prof. Eyal's untimely death and departure from scientific community is a loss to us all. I dedicate this opening lecture to him.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
