The genetics of resistance to footrot and seedlingblightwas studiedin three resistant wheat
lines, CPAN 1922, E 8667 and NP 825, by crossing them with two susceptible varieties,
Sonalika and Narmada 4. Studies under artificial inoculation in Fl and F2 generations
indicated that two dominant genes for resistance in E 8667 and NP 825 are complementary
to each of the two genes of CPAN 1922. E 8667 and NP 825 seem to possess the same genes
for resistance. Thus, resistance is controlled by four dominant genes in wheat.
Keywords: Resistance, foot rot, seedling blight, complementary genes.
