About this book

Disease resistance is one of the major factors that can be improved to sustain yield potential in cultivated crops. Disease Resistance in Wheat looks at disease resistance in wheat, concentrating on all the economically important diseases – their economic impact and geographical spread, breeding for resistance, pathogen variability, resistance mechanisms and recent advances made on resistance genes. Newer strategies for identifying resistance genes and identify resistance mechanisms are discussed, including cloning, gene transfer and the use of genetically modified plants. It is suitable for researchers and students of agriculture and crop protection.

Dr. Indu Sharma is currently the Project Director, Directorate of Wheat Research at Karnal, India managing the overall research and administrative activities of All India Coordinated Wheat and Barley Improvement Project. She had worked for more than 31 years on wheat specially on resistance to diseases. She was involved with 29 varieties including bread wheat, durum wheat, triticale and barley released for cultivation from the wheat material screened for Karnal bunt, rust, loose smut and barley for covered smut, loose smut. She had been creating artificial epiphytotics of the diseases in the breeding materials and also advanced varietal trial lines, conducting survey and surveillance to monitor status of pre- and post- harvest crop / grain health and transfer of technology to the farmers for managing diseases / pests and enhancing wheat production strategies. Dr. Sharma visited several countries (Mexico. She also visited China, Mexico, USA, Nepal, Kenya, Czech Republic & Russia, Syria, France Switzerland and Australia) under projects / presenting invited lectures & papers in seminars and conferences / under different collaborative projects with India / to impart training / to learn.
