A large bioassay identifies Stb resistance genes that provide broad resistance against Septoria tritici blotch disease in the UK

Tidd H, Rudd JJ, Ray RV, Bryant R, Kanyuka K - Frontiers in Pant Science, 2023


Septoria tritici blotch (STB) is one of the most damaging fungal diseases of wheat in Europe, largely due to the paucity of effective resistance genes against it in breeding materials. Currently dominant protection methods against this disease, e.g. fungicides and the disease resistance genes already deployed, are losing their effectiveness. Therefore, it is vital that other available disease resistance sources are identified, understood and deployed in a manner that maximises their effectiveness and durability.
