The WGRC collection of Genetic Stocks – Germ plasm lines.


  • WGRC germ plasm releases = 47

    Forty-seven germ plasm releases have been announced by the WGGRC.  These germ plasm lines contain new genes for resistance to Hessian fly; greenbug; leaf rust; powdery mildew; wheat streak, soilborne, and spindle streak mosaic viruses; Septoria leaf blotch; Septoria nodorum; tan spot, wheat curl mite; and Russian wheat aphid.  Most of the genes were derived from Ae. tauschii, T. monococcum, Agropyron intermedium, and rye.

  • Pest resistant = 14
