Margaret Krause, a doctoral candidate in Plant Breeding at Cornell University, became interested in science and nature at an early age.
Scientists are concerned over the proliferation of highly virulent fungal wheat diseases, including two new races of yellow rust and a new race of stem rust.
Wheat rust monitoring efforts are not only keeping the fast-spreading disease in check, but are deployed to manage other crop diseases, said a scientist at a scientific meeting in London.
Delivering Genetic Gain in Wheat is a new project that aims to mitigate climate change threats to wheat and develop disease-resistant and heat-tolerant varieties, writes Cornell’s Ronnie Coffman.
Climate-change-induced heat stress and disease pathogens migrating across borders threaten the world’s wheat supply and food security in Africa and the Middle East. Building on the Durable Rust Resist …
