A set of 50 candidate and released bread wheat cultivars of Pakistan were studied to identify slow rusting resistance against yellow rust caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici (PST). Seedling tests were done under glasshouse conditions at Thiverval-Grignon, INRA, France while slow rusting resistance was evaluated during 2005-07 in field plots using epidemiological variables at Peshawar, Pakistan. Twenty nine cultivars (58%) displayed susceptibility against the two PST races used in the seedling tests. Epidemiological parameters of resistance at the adult-plant stage were significantly (P<0.01) different for years, cultivars and cultivar x year interactions over three years. Analyses were done for sequence tagged site (STS) marker, csLV34 at INRA and revealed that 40% of the tested cultivars possessed adult plant resistance gene Yr18 linked allele of 150 bp. Of the 50 cultivars evaluated under field trials, 11 were highly resistant to both PST races as in the seedling tests and 39 showed different levels of slow rusting. Cultivars Bakhtawar-93, Punjab-96, Bahawalpur-95, V-00183 and V-00125 were relatively more stable over 3-years as Final Rust Severity (FRS), Area Under Disease Progress Curve (AUDPC) and Infection Rate (r) values were 74, 81, and 63% less of the susceptible control, Morocco, respectively. These cultivars also possessed the marker linked to Yr18 and could be exploited for the deployment of Yr18 in breeding for slow rusting in wheat. Both FRS and ACI are suitable parameters and can be used for phenotypic selection in a wheat breeding program for slow rusting resistance.
