Fifty four lines of wheat, derived from the crosses of cv. C 306 and different sources of
yellow and brown rust resistance through backcross and pedigree methods, were evaluated
for rust resistance, grain yield and otherattributes under rainfed conditions during 1988-89.
Eight promising lines were tested again during 1989-90 and 1990·91 at Gurdaspur. Four top
yielding and rust resistant lines (WG 3762, WG 3771, WG 3772 and WG 3773) were
identified. WG 3762 and WG 3771 also excelled the best check PBW 175 in grain yield.
Keywords: Triticum aestivum, wheat, rust wsistant.
