Several phases can be distinguished: use of Russian winter wheat, lines from the Southern Cone of South America (Brazil, Chile and Argentina) and USA as resistance sources; introduction of disease resistance from Brazilian sources into semi-dwarf and early backgrounds; introduction of genes from triticale and Triticum diccocon into common wheat; introgression of resistance from synthetic hexaploids and derivatives into susceptible bread wheat stocks; pyramiding of Chinese resistance sources with the sources mentioned above, and combining them into adapted agronomic types. Some preliminary work on resistant durum wheat sources, including some of the best ones from Tunisia, is presented.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
