Abstract

The resistance of wheat to the stem-rust organism (Puccinia graminis tritei) has been under investigation for a number of years. Although rust resistance has been investigated from various angles, there still remains a question as to the nature of resistance, the time when resistance first appears in plants and whether or not it is of a stable character. Peltier found that environmental conditions could change the degree and type of stem rust infection on wheat plants; Miss Hart proved that stomatal behavior was very important in the rust resistance, and Harrington and Aamodt studied the inheritance of rust resistance and found it to be of a fairly stable character.
