Resistance to Pyrenophora teres in barley

Gupta, S., Loughman, R., Lance, R. and Jones, M. (1999) Resistance to Pyrenophora teres in barley. In: 9th Australian Barley Technical Symposium, 12 - 16 September, Melbourne, Australia



Net-type net blotch of barley caused by Pyrenophora teres f. sp. teres occurs widely throughout the barley cropping regions of Australia. It reduces grain yield by up to 33% mainly through reduced grain size. Development of stable forms of resistance depends upon using barley lines resistant to the most prevalent isolates around Australia.
