Karnal bunt resistance in wheat embryos on different time regimes of grain development in bixenic cultures

Published on

Karnal bunt (KB) [(Neovossia indica (Mitra) Mundkur)],
an important disease of wheat causes partial conversion
of individual kernels into sori, filled with teliospores and
sterile cells resulting in losses in both yield and quality
[1]. The infected grains emit an unpleasant fishy odour
due to trimethylamine. The disease has a great
significance in global wheat trade because of stringent
quarantine measures. The development of KB resistant
varieties is difficult as the disease expression is highly
influenced by the environment. So finding some easy
way to screen against the disease will help to develop
resistant genotypes using conventional as well as
molecular techniques.
