Abstract

Inheritance studies were conducted on two leaf rust resistant durum wheats. Triticum durum cvs. Malvika and CPAN 6051 were crossed with susceptible durum wheat Malvi Local. The F2 and F3 generations were tested against leaf rust races 1, 77 (biotype A) and 108. Single dominant gene was effective against race 108 and two independently inherited dominant genes were effective against each of the races 1 and 77A in cultivar Malvika. Cultivar CPAN 6051 carried single dominant gene against races 1 and 108, whereas two independently inherited dominant genes were operative against race 77A. At least one resistance gene was common in cultivars Malvika and CPAN 6051.
