Session 1 Host Plant Resistance and Variety Development


The FHB resistance QTL region of wheat chromosome 2DS (QFhs.kibr-2D) flanks the reduced height gene Rht8, which might be a resistance gene complex consisting of morphological traits controlled by Rht8 for type I resistance and a specific gene(s) to control type II resistance by detoxification of DON. In this paper, we discussed relationship between plant height and FHB resistance for the QTL on the wheat chromosome 2DS, QFhs.kibr-2DS.
