In 2005–2008 virulence of the wheat leaf rust population was studied on Thatcher near-isogenic lines with Lr1, Lr2a, Lr2b, Lr2c, Lr3a, Lr9, Lr10, Lr11, Lr15, Lr17, Lr19, Lr21, Lr23, Lr24, Lr26 and Lr28. Samples of leaf rust were obtained from different parts of the Czech Republic. A total of 233 wheat leaf rust isolates were analyzed. Resistance gene Lr9 was effective to all tested isolates as in the four previous years. Virulence to Lr19 (0.8% of the analysed isolates) was found. Gene Lr24 conditioned resistance to almost all collections and a lower frequency of virulence was also observed on Lr2a and Lr28. Twenty-six winter wheat cultivars, seven spring wheat cultivars and seven winter triticale cultivars registered in 2005–2008 were tested with 7 leaf rust isolates. Winter wheat cultivars Biscay, Mulan and Orlando were resistant to all isolates and were also resistant in field trials.
