Evaluation of genotypes of tall fescue for resistance to Puccinia graminis subsp graminis in controlled conditions
Australasian Plant Pathology 24 (2), 82-87
Abstract: Eight commercial cultivars and one advanced breeding line of tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea) were screened for resistance to stem rust (Puccinia graminis subsp. graminis) in controlled conditions. Cultivar Melik and a breeding line (Melik Selection) shelved high levels of resistance, while the other seven cultivars were highly susceptible. The results with cultivar Melik indicate the potential for resistance to be maintained or incorporated into future tall fescue cultivars. Within cultivars AU-Triumph, Demeter, Mozark, Penna and Southern Cross, individual plants showed moderate resistance to stem rust and this could be used as a source of resistance in a selection program.
