Ehsan-ul-Haq, M.A.S. Kirmani, M.A. Khan and M. Niaz


29 wheat lines were tested in the field against stripe rust disease of wheat under natural conditions. These lines had different genotypes of different origin. Only leaf infection was recorded. Reactions were ranging from immunity to extreme susceptibility 15 lines were found resistant. The reactions among these advance line were recorded variable. Rest of the 14 lines were found susceptible to this disease. These were advance lines with high yield potential as well as high disease resistant. After 4-5 years these lines will be determined as commercia wheat cultivars.
