Chromosome location of resistance to septoria leaf blotch and common bunt in wheat-barley addition lines

Septoria leaf blotch and common bunt are important diseases of wheat to which Hordeum vulgare is resistant. Addition lines of H. vulgare in wheat were utilized to determine which H. vulgare chromosomes carry resistance genes. Resistance to septoria leaf blotch was conferred by gene(s) present all over the barley genome, but more strongly by those located on chromosomes 7 and 4. Almost complete resistance to common bunt was conferred by gene(s) present in chromosomes 6 and a slight but significant level of resistance was conferred by chromosome 7.
