Concepts of taxonomy, genetic epidemiology and management of Puccinia recondite: A review
Ahsan Raza, Muhammad Aslam Khan and Yasir Ali
The main purpose of present study was to provide an overview about survival and management of Puccinia recondite the causal agent of leaf rust of wheat. Leaf rust was first referred as Uredo rubigo-vera that produce urediniospores to cause disease on leaf tissue. The resistant wheat cultivars have extensive ability to reduce the production of such uridinospore productions. Such type of cultivars possesses resistant genes such as Lr1, Lr3 which cause impenetrability to rust. Similarly, Lr3ka, Lr3bg and Lr16 have little uredinia encompassed by putrefaction and lines with Lr11 appeared by little uridinia encomposed by chlorosis. In susceptible cultivars, the cultural practice does not ensure flexibility from rust in light of the fact that urediniospores are conveyed long separations by wind. Moreover, other epidemiological factors such as temperature, relative humidity, and rainfall have significant role in breakdown of resistance mechanism of resistant and susceptible cultivars. To overcome these challenges, this paper summarize the recent information of the P. triticina /wheat contact with highlighting on the rust resistance genes in wheat, epidemiology of brown rust, Ordred history and the management of Puccinia Recondita.
