Three hexaploid derivatives D 525-2 (from CPAN 6051), D 3237-5 (from DWL 5023) and D 3542-6 (from CPAN 6073) identified meiotically from the F2 population of the crosses between Triticum durum and T. aestivum were characterized for hybrid necrotic genes Ne1 and Ne2. These derivatives in crosses with T. aestivum cvs. Spica (carrier of Ne1) and Kalyan Sona (carrier of Ne2) were evaluated in the field for necrosis. Derivative D 525-2 carries Ne2 and Ne1 is present in D 3237-5 and D 3542-6. Being resistant to leaf rust of wheat the derivatives can be utilized in the breeding programmes.
