The aim of the three-year project is to investigate the molecular basis for the virulence of leaf rust
and other diseases towardPopulusspecies in order to address the challenge of engineering resistance against the pathogens.
Understanding cereal rust diseases, particularly wheat stem rust and wheat leaf rust
, has driven his career.
Coffee, one of the worlds most-traded commodities, is increasingly threatened by a disease known as coffee leaf rust
amp;nbsp;In 2012, coffee leaf rust
destroyed more than 85 percent of some Guatemalan producers' coffee yields.
Azoxystrobin helps in protecting crops against prevalent fungal diseases including Septoria leaf blotch, rye leafrust (Puccinia triticina), stripe rust, powdery mildew, wheat leaf rust
(Puccinia recondita), and downy mildew.
Ures-81 and Moncho-S have two genes for slow rusting resistance to leaf rust
(Das, Rajaram, Kronstad, Mundt, & Singh, 1993; Das, Rajaram, Mundt, & Kronstad, 2004).
disease is caused by Puccinia hordei (fungus) in barley.
They were also medium-tall and late maturing ones, which were susceptible to septoria and leaf rust
under the natural and/or artificial epidemic conditions of Turkey, USA and Ukraine and stem rust under the natural and/or artificial epidemic conditions of Turkey and Kenya.
According to a recent report of pest warning and quality control of pesticides, Aphid attack was witnessed on wheat crop in some area while the Leaf Rust
disease traditionally called 'Kungi' was also observed in some other areas last year in Punjab.
Identification of leaf rust
resistance genes in selected Argentinean bread wheat cultivars by gene postulation and molecular markers.
Consequently, there is believed to be a direct correlation between the warm and wet seasons (acerbated in the region by climate change) and coffee leaf rust
, a form of fungus that can destroy coffee crops.
Franke and Menz (2007) used three QuickBird multi-spectral remote sensing images to execute a spatio-temporal analysis of the leaf rust
