Forty-two stripe and leaf rust resistant derivatives of cv. WL 711 and 28 of C 306 were
evaluated in two yield trials during rabi 1990-1991. A number of lines with high rust
resistance significantly outyielded the check varieties. Five derivatives of WL 711 and 21 of
C 306 were completely free of rusts under field conditions and were significantly superior
in grain yield. Among these derivatives, only WG 3964, WG 3965, WG 4033 and WG 4034
had low incidence of Kamal bunt. Other lines were highly susceptible to Karnal bunt.
